“In the past most people left the world only slightly different from how it was when they found it. The rapid and accelerating change that marks our times means that every individual will see bigger changes every few years than previous generations saw in a lifetime. So this is the choice we must make for ourselves, for our children, for our countries and for our planet: acquire the skills needed to participate with understanding in the construction of what is new OR be resigned to a life of dependency.”
Papert, S. (1999) “What is Logo? And Who Needs It?” In Logo Philosophy and Implementation. Montreal: LCSI. page VIII-IX.
