“If you’ve seen kids with computers, you know that there’s no better catalyst to share ideas. It’s a much more socializing experience than either school, which isolates kids, or television, which doesn’t encourage any socialization. The computer encourages kids to have conversations with one another.”
Papert, S. (1997) in “Computing’s Idealist A chat with Seymour Papert, author of The Connected Family” by Robin Raskin. FamilyPC Magazine. February 1997.
