TEDxNYED - Gary Stager - 03/05/2011 (by TEDxTalks)
Gary Stager, an internationally recognized educator, speaker and consultant, is the Executive Director of The Constructivist Consortium. Since 1982, Gary has helped learners of all ages on six continents embrace the power of computers as intellectual laboratories and vehicles for self-expression. He led professional development in the world’s first laptop schools (1990), has designed online graduate school programs since the mid-90s, was a collaborator in the MIT Media Lab’s Future of Learning Group and a member of the One Laptop Per Child Foundation’s Learning Team.
I met Gary last year. He is doing great work with children and they are doing great work with him. Worth following on twitter and facebook. If a program like this can work in a prison why not in any school?
