If you were a PBS kid, watched Zoom in the 70s and enjoy Pi

That’s about the only combination of variables that would likely make you smile at this strange video about Pi.  I happen to possess all 3 of those variables, so I smiled. Thanks to http://technoccult.net/ for the find.

    Scratching my head on this one, but I dig the retro graphics.

    I advocate an approach where kids may not even be aware that they are learning and where they need to look for their own answers.

    I wrote “The Man with 29 Cats” with this approach to numbers, many years before the research that ‘play learning’ in children’s early years is more beneficial than traditional techniques.

    A recent study that children are less creative than they were 20 years ago suggests that we are going down the wrong road.

    I lay a lot blame at “Every Child Left Behind,” or is it really called “No Child Left Behind?” Schools are teaching for the test and trying to see that kids choose the right answer. This is a successful approach to education if your real aim is monopolizing power and wealth with the top 2%.
