Celebrating Seymour Papert, pioneer of constructionist learning, whose thinking and projects profoundly influenced and inspired millions of children, educators, and researchers around the world.
Seymour was my inspiration and guide. He trusted me from the moment I met him in 1993 in bringing his work to a wider audience in the world and allowed me to make my work meaningful. He honored me by accepting to serve on my advisory board when I created SEED.
The time is now to recommit and rededicate to the seeds that Seymour sowed.
Here are a few words about Seymour’s work quoted by different speakers.
Joi Ito “playfulness, activism, interest in learning, the time is now!”
Nicholas Negroponte “ Circleness, mathland, computer programming as thinking, debugging as learning, global”
Mich Resnick “Seymour laid the foundation of the coding, computational thinking and the makers movement”, ”the 4 Ps: Project, Passion, Peers and Play”
