Name: Bringing learning closer to life
This is the outline of the talk I planned for delivering in a panel discussion on "connecting life and learning" in a seminar on responses to the crisis in education. I will expand each of the sections below to make an essay. If you like to join with me in collaborating, keeping the framework intact, you are more than welcome to collaborate.

Scientists and mathematicians need to often write formulae. Orgmode uses LaTeX markup for writing mathematical formulae both in the running text or as displayed equations. I can write a simple equation (a+b)2 = a2+b2+2ab. I may want to use special characers in the equation: (α+β)2.
