Summary
The digital revolution necessitates, but also makes possible, radical changes in how and what we learn. This book describes a set of educational research projects at the MIT Media Laboratory, illustrating how new computational technologies can transform our conceptions of learning, education, and knowledge. The book draws on real-world education experiments conducted in formal and informal contexts: from inner-city schools and university labs to neighborhoods and after-school clubhouses. --From publisher's description
