Read full description of the books:



I borrowed The Children's Machine from the library because they didn't have Mindstorms, also by Seymour Papert. While the book was interesting enough as I was reading it, I have to admit that I got to the end not entirely understanding what he was trying to say with the whole book. He's talking about ways that computers can completely rework the ways that schools are run and the way children are educated, but I didn't feel like I left the book really understanding what his proposal for "rethinking school" was. Papert is the inventor of the Logo programming language, which some of you may remember as the "turtle" language you used to draw shapes on a computer screen in elementary school. He's also done a lot of work with Lego (it is no coincidence that Lego Mindstorms share a name with his 1980 book). He provides some very interesting anecdotes of children working with Logo and Lego and does manage to delve quite a bit into how children use these tools/toys, so I think the book is valuable for these insights, but it felt a little disjointed to me and didn't seem to spend as much time rethinking schools as I expected it to. Interesting, but I wish I'd been able to read Mindstorms instead - that seems to be his most famous/important work.
