Mindstorms: Children, Computers, and Powerful Ideas Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Mindstorms has two central themes: that children can learn to use computers in a masterful way and that learning to use computers can change the way they learn everything else. Even outside the classroom, Papert had a vision that the computer could be used just as casually and as personally for a diversity of purposes throughout a persons entire life. Seymour Papert makes the point that in classrooms saturated with technology there is actually more socialization and that the technology often contributes to greater interaction among students and among students and instructors.

Book News Annotation:

New edition of an influential book published in 1980 by the inventor of LOGO, the computer programming language designed for children. Papert discusses why and how he invented the language and shares his insightful thinking about children and learning.
Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
