Descrição do produto
“Marvin Minsky is best known as one of the founders of the field of artificial intelligence, but his true goal was understanding human intelligence. In these lovely essays, Marvin shares his distinctive, often contrarian ideas about children, learning, and education. As you read these essays, you'll find yourself thinking about your own thinking―and, more important, gain insights into why and how children should do the same.”―Mitchel Resnick, LEGO Papert Professor of Learning Research, MIT Media Lab; author of Lifelong Kindergarten
“Let's face it, writings on education tend to be plodding, stultifying affairs for the most part. What a joy then to have Marvin Minsky, who spent a lifetime thinking hard about thinking, weigh in on the subject. Put aside all your preconceptions about age-graded and clock-based classes, all your concerns about the current education industry, and get ready to think about a radically different education where children learn to become self-aware about their own thinking.”―Hector J. Levesque, Professor Emeritus, University of Toronto
“In a time when education visionaries and magical solutions for our outdated schools are a dime a dozen, reading Marvin Minsky reminds us of what thinking outside of the box truly means. Even after 50 years, his ideas are still rebellious and radically innovative, and the revolution he started with Seymour Papert lives on. But these essays are also a reminder of how far we are from realizing Minsky's vision of education as the most fascinating, deep, and ambitious challenge humanity has created for itself. There is much work to be done, and this book might just be the first step.”―Paulo Blikstein, Associate Professor, Columbia University

The problem is that the content is very small, and one can't really make a book out of it. Specifically, Minsky wrote 6 small essays on the subject, one of whom (the first) doesn't even really fit in the subject (it explains how computers work).
Therefore, the producer hacked together lots of fillers, in order to sell something. The result is that Minsky's essays make less than half of the book's content: the rest is afterwords, forewords, empty pages, drawings, the biography and so on.
Save some money, and just read them online; they're available for free.
I’m still thinking about Minsky’s idea of the potential creativity that exists in an endless stock of Tinker-toys and what that means in the English classroom.
Each essay has given me something important to consider about my teaching and my own continuing education.
Unfortunately this excellent e-book is incompatible with most Amazon Kindle Readers!
It is incompatible with Kindle Paperwhite. It is incompatible with Kindle Cloud Reader.
And although it can be opened in iPhone and Android Kindle apps, it is barely readable
there due to text size. Most excellent text in hard to read e-format! Still love it!
