  • “I am a pessimist because of intelligence but an optimist because of will” — Antonio Gramsci

  • “Rarely is the question asked: ‘Is our children learning?’” — George W. Bush
  • “There is no such thing as educational value in the abstract. The notion that some subjects and methods and that acquaintance with certain facts and truths possess educational value in and of themselves is the reason why traditional education reduced the material of education so largely to a diet of predigested materials” — John Dewey

  • "The name does not imply that such writing would condemn computers any more than literary criticism condemns literature or social criticism condemns society. The purpose of computer criticism is not to condemn but to understand, to explicate, to place in perspective. Of course, understanding does not exclude hard (perhaps even captious) judgment. The result of understanding may well be to debunk. But critical judgment may also open our eyes to previously unnoticed virtue.” — Seymour Papert
  • “For f**k’s sake, read Mindstorms” — Bret Victor
  • “Education is broken. Somebody should fix it.” — pretty much every education startup founder in Silicon Valley
  • "While undoubtedly of great potential benefit, it is clear that educational technology is a value-laden site of profound struggle that some people benefit more from than others – most notably in terms of power and profit.” — Neil Selwyn
  • “We are losing the ability to talk about things at the level of the collective” — Evgeny Morozov
  • “A moral, not a technological solution” — Edward Hewlett
