Questions on MOVIE 1:

1. What are some special features about Brooklyn Tech HS that you noticed?
2. What are special features of where you teach?
3. Research in "situated learning" says that students find it hard to apply skills from one context to another. Are Goldman's goals about his freshmen students learning about designing in line with this? Do you think students can "transfer" skills like designing or experimenting from one context to another?
