    Thanks for making the focus on creativity, and innovative ideas (not just replicas of paper), and ways that apps might open up some doors. It’s about the agency of the user, right? We want our kids to be in the driver’s seat, not the consumer chair. I like how you toggle between apps, depending on what you are seeking to do.
