Stephen Thomas

Stephen has always been fascinated by how kids learn and think. He studied Mathematics Education and had the pleasure of learning from Robert B. Davis, while he was at Rutgers. He is an Etoys enthusiast and supporter who has taught a number of classes for kids.
His main area of interest is in finding good metaphors for powerful ideas and rendering them in Etoys (and other ways) to explore how these metaphors can be used to affect the understanding of children and provide them "Tools to think with".

His main test subjects are his four children, whom he insists have not been harmed in any lasting way.
