    1. Elizabeth Evans Getzel is the Director for Transition Innovations at Virginia Commonwealth University and has a long history of working with students with disabilities in higher education.

    1. This journal article, written by Amaury Nora, who is currently the Dean for Research at the University of Texas San Antonio and Blanca Plazas Snyder who was pursuing a degree in educational psychology at the time this article as written. The author's bring an honest review of technology and include the benefits, the downfalls and they identify areas where more research needs to be conducted (especially around student persistence).

      Rating: 9/10. The article is informative and takes many perspectives. The only flaw is that when discussing technology in Higher Education, this article is from 2008, but it was also helpful to get the perspective from 10 years ago.

    1. Cloninger has trained rats and mice in mazes to have persistence by carefully not rewarding them when they get to the finish. “The key is intermittent reinforcement,” says Cloninger. The brain has to learn that frustrating spells can be worked through. “A person who grows up getting too frequent rewards will not have persistence, because they’ll quit when the rewards disappear.”

      I wonder if this could be applied to my cat?

    1. Through thesoup, new and unanticipated tools can accessdomain objects. These tools might need to be notified of statechanges which do not yet trigger an observer notification.As thesoupcan contain objects from arbitrary classes, tooldevelopers can not manually adapt these domain classes totrigger notifications.

      The soup is a generic storage mechanism, while in Grafoscopio, being focused only on interactive documents writing, the GrafoscopioNode is specific storage mechanism, that can persist outside the image by being serialized to the file system (via STON).
