I think these constructivist learning tools are the catalysts in changing the focus on learning; Seymour Papert’s dream coming true. Now the challenge is to work with our teachers to believe in the same by helping kids create new knowledge rather than just memorize trivial facts. Information literacy, Learning to be global citizens, think critically, is what 21st century learning is all about. After careful review, I have purchased a class set (23 units) to pilot in our schools in Irving, Texas (home of Dallas Cowboys football team). The XO units arrived last week. What a joy!!
