Clark Quinn

David Jonassen passed away on Sunday.  He had not only a big impact on the field of computers for learning, but also on learning itself. And he was a truly nice person.

But then I don’t want to stop sharing stuff here. Probably I should start writing snippets – a few lines or a paragraph about something that I want to share. What do you think? Writers Gateway News
