Dave, I would be very interested in: Exposure to as many programs like Inspiration as possible in the sense that I am interested in open-ended generic programs that students can use as tools rather than skill and drill type stuff. Perhaps a combination of thinking, brainstorming about how to use the computer to help students learn to analy ze text and some development work of our on text analysis, using either particular software or coming up with new approaches that can be computerized or not. How about having a software developer present if we get really creative? I don't do boot camps but I love think tanks! I've some more ideas but right now I have class. Will write more later. Your idea to do this is wonderful! Don't do it at the same time Hunter Boylan has the summer institute. On another note, the folks here at ACC are in love with the big bucks progams, y ou know, Plato, etc. At CASP I attended a session in which you shared some info on the amount of progress students make as a result of using these programs. Could I please get a copy of this info to share with my administration? I quoted you in a meeting on Friday and they have asked for more information. I would appreciate anything you can share.
