  7. 7. www.inventtolearn.com “To [Seymour] Papert, the strength of the computer lies in none of these categories. It is a material to be ‘messed about with.’ The act of messing about, which we might call tinkering, is where the learning happens. The computer provides a flexible material that the child can weave into their own ideas and master for their own purposes.”
