In the educational software domain, I would like to work on things that
benefit my learning primarily, and others' learning secondarily. (It's
hoped, however, that my learning style is not too wacky.) I feel that
otherwise I would not be able to relate fully to the work.
I've noticed I learn a lot by doing experiments and interacting with
some system (normally programming systems). Currently, these systems
give feedback that is both intriguing and frustrating, and I find that
that environment encourages me to poke around until my curiosity and ego
are satisfied. I find some visualization appealing, but mostly deal
I think I would enjoy using (and maybe writing) a tutorial on a certain
programming language, as long as the tutorial was designed to evolve
into a standalone tutor.
