teaching programming in context

Have been thinking a lot about how we teach technology, especially programming. University of British Columbia built a very cool "Virtual Family" game-like program for teaching Java to undergrads, which seems like it's exactly the way we need to go. Then one of my students showed me Terrarium, a really cool tool for learning .NET.

We need to do more of this. We need release time so that we can do more of this. We need to care about doing this. We need to tell people when we do this.
