“We want to develop a lean prototype, get it into schools this Fall, talk to content makers and hardware makers and work with teachers and students. I’ve worked on projects where a bunch of smart people sat in a room and decided what teachers needed. We built beautiful high-concept Web-based curriculum and marched it into the South Bronx and were met with, ‘This is nice. I need math worksheets. I don’t need this – I need prep sheets for the year-end math test.’ There has to be a balance point in there, something that innovates a bit while also addressing what the users – the teachers and students and the people they answer to – actually need right now.”
