I can't remember the post that was recently sent out, but I do remember the subject. It touched on the idea of teaching the theory behind a subject before teaching the subject. I applaud you loudly! I have been arguing this point for the 2-3 years I have been using blender with many different tutorial makers. Most people want to approach teaching blender by showing someone the shortcuts and then letting the user figure out what to do with them. If we could help a user understand what a subsurface is then they could more fully understand the potential of subsurface modeling. This would help drive the imagination of the student so that once they begin to learn how to subsurface model all of the shortcuts would have a place in their mind to go.
  It seems that most of the people working on making a blender education system have been teaching some kind of class professionally. I have the drive and direction, but I do not have the education and resources. If I can be of help with organizing of ideas or structuring them please let me know. Other than that, I will have to wait for curriculum before I can be a productive part of the blender education initiative.
  Thank you for your time,
  Jason Allen Bayne
