Mitch Resnick, Professor of Learning Research at the MIT Media Lab, director of its Lifelong Kindergarten research group, and the head of the Scratch Team, shares his insights on the challenges and opportunities of education today. Classrooms have changed, why hasn’t teaching? “New technologies provide us with the opportunity to rethink what we learn, how we learn, where we learn, when we learn, and who we learn with. But too often people aren’t taking advantage of the possibilities of the new technology.” Resnick worries education is too information-centric, that we are holding onto transmission/delivery models of education. Rather, he contends, we need to revisit constructivist principles of building new knowledge through meaningful concrete experiences. Technology allows people to conceive of and design new things, so that people can learn anytime, anyplace with peers and subject matter experts of their choosing.
