Fifty years ago, Seymour Papert and Cynthia Solomon published a remarkable paper titled, “Twenty Things to Do with a Computer.” This paper predicted the maker movement, 1:1 computing, and challenged schools to embrace computers as intellectual laboratories and vehicles for self-expression. Gary Stager, co-author of Invent To Learn – Making, Tinkering, and Engineering in the Classroom, worked with Dr. Papert for more than two decades and continues to work with Dr. Solomon. He is at work on publishing an all-star anthology celebrating the anniversary of this groundbreaking work.
Veteran educator Gary Stager, Ph.D. is co-author of Invent To Learn — Making, Tinkering, and Engineering in the Classroom, publisher at Constructing Modern Knowledge Press, and the founder of the Constructing Modern Knowledge summer institute. He led professional development in the world’s first 1:1 laptop schools thirty years ago and designed one of the oldest online graduate school programs. Gary is also the curator of The Seymour Papert archives at DailyPapert.com. Learn more about Gary at ProfessorGaryStager.com.
