Weekend Ed. Quote~September 13

“In a classical joke a child stays behind after school to ask a personal question. “Teacher, what did I learn today? ” The surprised teacher asks, “Why do you ask that?” and the child replies, “Daddy always asks me and I never know what to say”.”
~Seymour Papert,     The Children’s Machine: Rethinking School In The Age Of The Computer



“Increasingly, the computers of the very near future will be the private property of individuals, and this will gradually return to the individual the power to determine patterns of education. Education will become more of a private act, and people with good ideas, different ideas, exciting ideas will no longer be faced with a dilemma where they either have to “sell” their ideas to a conservative bureaucracy or shelve them. They will be able to offer them in an open marketplace directly to consumers. There will be new opportunities for imagination and originality. There might be a renaissance of thinking about education.”
