Kaizendo: Customizable schoolbooks

Date and Time: 
6 November, 2010 - 10:00 - 10:30

Imagine a textbook where a pupil and her teacher can choose topic depth, clarity of text or homework difficulty as needed and necessary. Where teachers can choose alternatives supporting different instruction methods and teaching styles, and schools can allow different chapter content based on time constraints or policy. Books where parents can get a topic summary to read before helping with homework. And then imagine finding all this in the same book.

This talk introduces the Kaizendo project, where the goal is to make books like this possible.

The speaker will be presenting an overview of the project and it's motivation, followed by a look at the application in such a way that anyone who wants the project to succeed can jump in and help.
