I am at the Supercomputing Conference in Seattle , Washington. I am a K-12 teacher. There are rich resources and ideas here that need to be disseminated
in classrooms. Some of that work is that of Dr. Robert Panoff at www.shodor.org, and there are many components to his work.
I think that if he was able to distribute his work and Pat Phillips ideas were widely shared more teachers would be interested. I think the Dept of Education should sponsor teachers to the Supercomputing Conference next year in Salt Lake City.
