Twenty Things to Do with a Computer Forward 50 Book Discussion Videos

I recently organized an online study group to discuss the new book, Twenty Things to Do with a Computer Forward 50Future Visions of Education Inspired by Seymour Papert and Cynthia Solomon’s Seminal Work. Over the five sessions, readers were able to interact with contributors to the book, including Cynthia Solomon, Dan Watt, Molly Watt, David Loader, Ron Canuel, Yasmin Kafai, Justice Walker, Tom Lauwers, Marian Rosen, Martin Levins, David Thornburg, Heather Pang, and Peter Rawitsch.

Veteran, retired, and new educators from around the world joined the discussions. Now, you can relive those conversations.

These conversations will eventually be added to the Constructing Modern Knowledge Podcast collection.
