A famous computer scientist demonstrates the value of educating children on the fundamentals of computers in this ground-breaking book, emphasizing how it can help them succeed in the rapidly changing tech industry.
Computers have completely transformed the way we teach kids, and we can thank Mindstorms for that. In this book, pioneering computer scientist Seymour Papert argues for the benefits of training kids with computers by citing the creation of LOGO, the first kid-friendly programming language. Children are more than capable of learning how to use computers, according to Papert, who also claims that teaching computational skills in the classroom, such as debugging, can transform how we learn everything else. He also demonstrates how technologically advanced schools may enhance socializing and interactivity among pupils.
