I took a look at your presentation and am providing a list of items I've

sound idiotic, ignorance is my excuse ;)
Anyway, that's one of the reason't I looked the presentation over, as
I'm still hungry for Seaside examples, tutorials and information.
"Learner" class is referred to various names such as "Leaner" and

There is a problem with the code. "i := self chooseEntry" is called,

"teak" -> "tweak"

In the Word Learning application, it is missing the
Hope this helps you out. Feel free to send me a revision to look over
