Do you hold a patent yet on this "interactive learning system"?

To hold the interest of kids today, you'll probably have to find some
way to get a dozen more distractions into the scene.  Multimodal
learning demands that every one of what we used to call a distraction
is actually another stream of content to reinforce all the others.
It's really pretty basic if you imagine how we probably learned not to
get killed in a primordial 3D environment.  Why anyone ever thought a
single teacher broadcasting a single thought to an audience of
deskbound children would be effective is beyond me (they probably
never had children).
