From a scholarly article I’m reading (emphasis mine):
“The software was subsequently enhanced to include an open data architecture that allows users and curriculum designers to create their own data libraries.”
My question: Why is software being designed BEFORE curriculum? Why is the assumption that curriculum designers will design around the software? Am I the only one who feels that there is something wrong with this?
