For helping teach my kid to read I used emacs running emacspeak.
The robotic language, via the eflite speech synthesis server, was
sufficient to get the words' pronunciation across.  Type
"D-O-G-<space>" in a buffer and you get the audio feedback "dog."
I used to set the xterm to the most massive font size available
(by adjusting the font and screen sizes) to make reading, or so I
assumed, easier for preschool eyes.

work experience) outside.  If you want to specialize in CS Education, it
would be better if you went abroad, and best if you came back to share
everything you learned. :)

Others see you as fresh, lively, charming, amusing, practical, and always interesting; someone who's constantly in the center of attention, but sufficiently well-balanced not to let it go to their head. They also see you as kind, considerate, and understanding; someone who'll always cheer them up and help them out.
