Overview 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 person’s 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.

A reissue of the visionary book that began the computer revolution in schools. The bible of thousands of teachers who have sought creative ways to use computers in schools, this book tells the story of the invention of LOGO, the first child-friendly computer programming language. Translated into 13 languages.
