He writes passionately about his experiences with schools, children, learning, and their intersections. Drawing from both theoretical and empirical perspectives, Papert lays out the compelling reasons for rethinking education in this Information Age. His words echo those of Piaget and many others that are completely convinced that there is indeed hope for change. Continuing in the tradition of his previous book "Mindstorms: Children, Computers, and Powerful Ideas" and thoroughly describing the further innovative potential of his own Logo program, Papert does not fail to educate, inspire, and provoke his readers. He ends the book with a chapter on what can be done now, and, almost 15 years since its release, his ideas are still relevant.
