Lifelong Kindergarten (16 Feb 2001)
I'll discuss why kindergarten is one of the few success stories of our educational system -- and how new technologies can help us extend the successful "kindergarten approach" to learners of all ages. I will describe some of the "computational construction kits" that we have developed at the MIT Media Lab, and discuss how these kits (like the blocks and fingerpaint of kindergarten) can expand the range of what people can design and create -- and what they learn in the process. I will also discuss some new learning contexts (such as Computer Clubhouses) where we are trying out our ideas.
