Claude Almansi's comment, October 31, 2011 3:24 AM
Thank you for the scoop, Susan: it is important because this framework is Unesco's. However the PDF of this framework (1) is strangely repetitive in its emptiness. The very few examples of possible activities were already run-of-the-mill in the former millennium, except for one foreseeing the use of the interactive whiteboards: but how many schools in emerging countries can afford them?

Also: how does a 94-page, multi-column, A4-formatted PDF read on a smart cell phone?
