New Learning Environments (23 Feb 2001)
In this talk I will discuss how the development of technological fluency through constructionist uses can help liberate untapped learning potential. In order to accomplish this, the tools and uses must be open for expression and appropriation. I will focus on two elements: the nature of the tools we create and the types of activities and settings in which we work. I will discuss a few of the new environments we are making and provide examples from our learning lab in a juvenile jail and work in rural areas of Thailand where our participants achieved at levels far beyond normal expectations.
