      ELI Annual Meeting, February 2013
This is not a
 talk about
  MOOCs (Except it sorta is...)
“In most contemporary educational
situations where children come into
contact with computers the computer is
used to put children through their paces,
to provide exercises of an appropriate
level of difficulty, to provide feedback,
and to dispense information. The
computer programming the child.”

      Seymour Papert, Mindstorms (1980)
