“I left Geneva enormously inspired by Piaget’s image of the child, particularly by his idea that children learn so much without being taught. But I was also enormously frustrated by how little he could tell us about how to create conditions for more knowledge to be acquired by children through this marvelous process of “Piagetian learning.” I saw the popular idea of designing a “Piagetian Curriculum” as standing Piaget on his head: Piaget is par excellence the theorist of learning without curriculum. As a consequence, I began to formulate two ideas that run through this book: (1) significant change in patterns of intellectual development will come about through cultural change, and (2) the most likely bearer of potentially relevant cultural change in the near future is the increasingly pervasive computer presence.”
