Weekend Ed. Quote ~ April 30

 

“… the original decision about how to use computers placed the teacher on a collision course with School’s system of control: As soon as she (the teacher) decided not to control the students, she took away School’s established way of controlling her. The question has moved from how power is distributed within the educational hierarchy to whether hierarchy to whether hierarchy is an appropriate mode of organization for education.”

~Seymour Papert, The Children’s Machine: Rethinking school in the age of the computer, 1993
