  • 53. “I believe that the computer presence will enable us to so modify the learning environment outside the classrooms that much if not all the knowledge schools presently try to teach with such pain and expense and such limited success will be learned, as the child learns to talk, painlessly, successfully, and without organized instruction.

But it is an open question whether they will adapt by transforming themselves into something new or wither away and be replaced.” Seymour PapertWednesday, December 5, 12
