I recently discovered a podcast in which the mother of educational computing, my friend Cynthia Solomon, perfectly captures the spirit and mission of Constructing Modern Knowledge. I am humbled by her praise for our annual event. Since the first institute, Dr. Solomon, has been an integral part of CMK. Sadly, Cynthia will not be with us in 2022, but her influence is everywhere in our work. (watch the brilliant videos below)
Laura Hart conducted two fascinating and illuminating conversations with Dr. Solomon. Anyone interested in understanding learning or the history of educational computing would be wise to watch both videos.
More than four dozen leading educators and thinkers celebrate the remarkable contributions of Cynthia Solomon and Seymour Papert while sharing visions for the future of education in our new book, Twenty Things to Do with a Computer Forward 50 – Future Visions of Education Inspired by Seymour Papert and Cynthia Solomon’s Seminal Work.
