A few months ago, I was invited to speak with the Columbia University FabLearn Fellows about the life, work, and legacy of my friend, colleague, and mentor, Dr. Seymour Papert. After my presentation, a healthy conversation emerged. I hope this is useful or interesting.
On September 25, 2021, I will be speaking about the work of Seymour Papert and Cynthia Solomon at the Make: Education Forum.
For more information on Seymour Papert, peruse the archives at The Daily Papert.
