Audrey Watters comes out with a ringing endorsement of Invent to Learn by Gary Stager and Sylvia Martinez. "Invent to Learn matters. It matters as a defense of democracy, community, and learning in ways that Ravitch’s book, buried as it is in policy and polemic, cannot accomplish. Invent to Learn offers a vision of technology in the hands of learners and in the service of progressive education." It matters, she says, because it does not simply criticize the status quo and the reform movement, but instead offers a way forward based on the principles of constructionist education.
