Earlier this week I was interviewed on Milwaukee public radio. Mitch Teich asked good questions, and we covered a lot of ground in just under 20 minutes.
We discuss queen sacrifices, the recent Japanese move against the humanities and social sciences, demographics, enrollment trends, technology gaps between K-12 and tertiary education, MOOCs, STEM, computational thinking, gender balance in STEM, the Homeland generation, distance learning, classrooms of the future, disintegrated computing, multitasking, humanities computing. automation, the feelings of parents sending children to school, and the reactions of cats.
Thanks to Mitch for fine interviewing (and a sense of humor), and to Marquette University for the opportunity.
