Dear EdResource members,
Hello, I thought..this new publication might interest you..
Changing Minds: Computers, Learning, and Literacy by Dr. Andrea diSessa (MIT Press, October 2001)
"A remarkable book. Part educational philosophy, part scholarly memoir, part cultural manifesto, it weaves these elements together beautifully in a single captivating narrative. This is one of the best modern books on education that I have read." -- Michael Eisenberg, University of Colorado
Andrea diSessa's career as a scholar, technologist, and teacher has been driven by one important question: can education--in particular, science education--be transformed by the computer so that children can learn more, learn more easily at an earlier age, and learn with pleasure and commitment? This book is diSessa's informed and passionate affirmative answer to that question.
