An educational Philosophy Based on the theory of S. Papert called Constructionism Transmission of knowledge is just a small fraction of learning. Children can learn on their own with hardly any influence from teachers « It is not a laptop project, it is an educational project » Core idea: education is the best way to reduce inequalities If every child in the world has access to a computer, what potential could be unlocked? What problems could be solved?
