    • Surprising questions from kids8-12  How do you make the squiggly sign in emails?  This site asked me for my username and password. What is it?  I want to go to LEGO.com but I don’t know how to spell it.  What do you mean, “Google it?”

    • Final thought The informal, exciting half of kids education occurs “after school.” This is the place where 21st century students learn about their world and prepare themselves for their 21st century lives. --Marc Prensky, education and technology innovator We’re the “after school”! Yaaaay, us!
