a clear emphasis
on the need to transform the *content* of instruction as well as the

doubt have other
approaches to curriculum content.
I'd just be interested to hear from others working on technology &
education & chat
what their approach to the content is. Does one just grab at a specific
math, say "polygons," and create software around this topic that enables
good peer interaction, for example? Or does one's interest and
knowledge of chat
guide, in some way or other (not necessarily Davydov's!) the choice of
math (or other) content of the software?
