Dave Moursund Explores a Quora Question

I am a computer educator, a math educator, and a writer. As a computer educator, I founded the non-profit International Society for Technology in Education more than 40 years ago, and headed this organization for many years (ISTE, 2020, link). As a math educator, I have served on the Board of the non-profit Math Learning Center since it was established more than 40 years ago (Math Learning Center, 2020, link). As a writer, I have authored, co-authored, and/or edited more than 60 books and about a thousand articles. Most of my writings are available free through Information Age Education, a non-profit company that I established about a dozen years ago (IAE, 2020, link). Throughout my professional career, I have been particularly interested in studying and teaching problem solving.

During these current stay-at-home days, I frequently find myself browsing the Quora website (Quora, n.d., link). The site posts a wide variety of interesting and challenging questions and problems, and it shares some of the answers provided by readers. Sometimes I submit an answer. I was somewhat surprised recently to see that an answer I submitted awhile back had received 26 positive votes. (My goodness, such fame! All of my years of being a math, computer science, and education professor are finally paying off.)

This Declaration on the Rights of the Child is the first international statement that recognizes specific rights of the children and pointing out the responsibilities of adults (Oliver, 12/12/2011).

The world has broadly accepted that education is an inalienable right of children. In my most recent IAE Newsletter, I briefly present the idea that home and school access to the Internet and the Web for educational purposes is fast becoming a new inalienable right of all children (Moursund, 4/30/2020, link).

A Hello from Dave Moursund

I have recently learned that the software that is supposed to send you a notification when I post an Information Age Education blog has been broken for some unknown amount of time. Thus, you likely have not been receiving a timely notice when I post an IAE Blog.

Good news! It has just been repaired. The purpose of this IAE Blog is to tell you about some of the blog entries you have missed.
