Mitch Resnick on Papert’s Dream

“Probably the biggest challenges for Scratch—and for realizing for Papert’s dream—are not technological but cultural and educational. There needs to be a shift in how people think about programming, and how they think about computers in general. We need to expand the conception of digital fluency to include designing and creating, not just browsing and interacting.” – from the essay “Reviving Paper’s Dream” written by Mitch Resnick, Lifelong Kindergarten Group at the MIT Media Lab
