Will Wright - Simulations for Learning “Montessori taught me the joy of discovery. It showed you can become interested in pretty complex theories, like Pythagorean theory, say, by playing with blocks. It’s all about learning on your terms, rather than a teacher explaining stuff to you. SimCity comes right out of Montessori.” - http://tinyurl.com/willwrightny Video talk at TED: http://tinyurl.com/willwrightted 9 UNO Virtual
