[xmca] Fwd: Sawyer introduction chapter & ICLS 2010 symposium opp (deadline: Oct 30, 2009)

Dear All,

Tony was kind enough to pass this chapter along and save my student the burden - after getting through a few more project meetings today, I'd like to add to the discussion based on my lecture notes from class two weeks ago where we covered this reading...

On a related note, the International Conference of the Learning Sciences (ICLS) 2010 CfP has been issued, with a deadline of Oct 30, 2009) - was wondering if anyone on the list would be interested in composing a proposal for a symposium...

More on the conference & CFP:
