The Daily Papert

Seymour Papert was the originator of a highly influential learning theory called constructionism.”  I really like his quote below.  How do we encourage our students to take charge of their learning?  It’s something I think about everyday.

“The fourth big idea is learning to learn. Many students get the idea that “the only way to learn is by being taught.” This is what makes them fail in school and in life. Nobody can teach you everything you need to know. You have to take charge of your own learning.”

From The Daily Papert.
