A Reminder from Seymour Papert

From "The Dialy Papert"

“But there is a world of difference between what computers can do and what society will choose to do with them”.
Papert, S. (1981) Mindstorms: Children, Computers and Powerful Ideas. NY: Basic Books. Page 5.

 and one more from the same source: 
“I think it’s an exaggeration, but that there’s a lot of truth in saying that when you go to school, the trauma is that you must stop learning and you must now accept being taught.”
Seymour Papert in conversation with Paolo Friere in Brazil during the late 1980s.
