Commentary by Stephen Downes

Squeak is a multimedia authoring tool used to generate learning by simulation, run as a plug-in (similar to Flash) and available as an free and open source download. The best way to understand what Squeak is about is to look at this Drive a Car demo (no downloads or plugins needed to view). Some good resources come with this site, including Kay's Scientofic American article pointing to the role of computer networks and simulations in changing not only learning but culture as well (a view with which I agree). Via Bonnie Bracey's post in WWWEDU. It is fascinating for me to discover huge projects and communities like this - no doubt Squeak is familiar to many readers, but it was new to me and no doubt will be to others as well.
