OISE partners with War Industry

Strategic Partnership to Drive Better Training Solutions - Atlantis Partners with the Institute for Knowledge, Innovation and Technology (IKIT) at OISE/University of Toronto"

IKIT is led by "lead by world renowned cognitive scientists Dr. Marlene Scardamalia and Dr. Carl Bereiter."

Note that Atlantis is a military contractor. So much for educating the next generation: "Atlantis is a globally recognized developer of simulation-based training systems principally for military and commercial aircraft servicing an international client base. With a track record of 25 years, Atlantis produces turnkey training solutions including flight training devices, advanced maintenance trainers, tactical team trainers, sensor and system part-task training solutions, pilot selection systems, avionic test equipment, and simulated cockpit controls and displays."

[I have removed my comments on this post while I consider if they are appropriate. Having discussed this with a number of lawyers, the conclusion was really one of the necessity of my comment, not whether it was actionable or objectionable. I will leave it up to you to guess why it even became an issue.]
