Imagine a schoolbook where the pupil and her teacher can choose the topic depth, clarity of text and homework difficulty as needed and necessary. Add alternatives for teachers (different didactic methods, teaching styles), schools (different chapter content based on time constraints or policy) and parents (a topic summary to read before helping with homework.)

This talk introduces the Kaizendo project, where the goal is to make these kinds of books possible to write.

The speaker will be presenting a quick overview of the project followed by a look at application in such a way that anyone who wants the project to succeed can jump in and help.
