Your point is well taken, Stephen. These scriopts do not allow for questions
at all, nor do they even allow thinking. "This is a ---[triangle]---. What
is this? ----------- Yes!! A triangle. Jimmy, point to the triangle..

Not so responsive, at least in my view.

>>Interesting. Do they make scripted programs that help teachers answer
the unique questions thinking students may ask? Or is there a generic
way in which all students learn, process, understand, get confused by
information presented in a class? My sense of good teaching is that
teachers must indeed reinvent the wheel daily if they are responsive
