Deer Isle: lNew, wiki, WUaS, "Massachusetts Institute of Technology - MIT," subject, MIT Videos, Technological Innovations, Generating Overachievers?

MIT Media Lab looks to have innovative research projects in abundance

(many faculty/students/buildings/floors/significant history of Lab to product/production),

and it's big/huge, with a significant, physical object focus.

The Media Lab at World University & School ... http://worlduniversity.wikia.com/wiki/Media_Lab_at_World_University_and_School ... plans to be in 3000 - 8000 languages and 200 countries, and would like to focus on innovation, digitally especially.

How to facilitate a kind of wiki-flourishing here?

is presently in the MIT Media Lab in Cambridge ... just learned of MIT-originating FabAcademy (not free) - http://fabacademy.org/ - wondering how, wiki-wise, to extend the innovation here at the Media Lab into 3,000-8,000 languages at the Media Lab at World University & School ... http://worlduniversity.wikia.com/wiki/Media_Lab_at_World_University_and_School ... will add FabAcademy to the references ... FabAcademy is about going from code to the physical, whereas the MediaLab at WUaS is as exclusively online and as INTERNET-CENTRIC as possible ...

New, wiki, WUaS, "Massachusetts Institute of Technology - MIT," subject page - http://worlduniversity.wikia.com/wiki/Massachusetts_Institute_of_Technology_-_MIT - with one, MIT OCW course on MIT's history, - and where at WUaS we can all teach, learn and create ... there are a slew of resource-gems about MIT out there, I'm sure ... and here's the beginning of the Media Lab at WUaS - http://worlduniversity.wikia.com/wiki/Media_Lab_at_World_University_and_School - planned for all languages, and where YOU can innovate online.

The way Scratch programming language - http://scratch.mit.edu/ - (out of the MIT Media Lab) ... spread is first via workshops, then via educators, attention in the Media, Techie or Geekie parents, and now in schools / and after school centers, and then via friends ... good paths for WUaS ... http://worlduniversity.wikia.com/wiki/World_University ( http://worlduniversity.wikia.com/wiki/Programming ) …

Are your kids learning Scratch, by any chance?
