Nicholas Negroponte on Technology

  1. Computing is not about computers any more. It is about living.

  2. The computer provides the only way to give students a real foundation in 21st-century skills.

  3. Being digital is a license to grow.

  4. Giving the kids a programming environment of any sort, whether it’s a tool like Squeak or Scratch or Logo to write programs in a childish way — and I mean that in the most generous sense of the word, that is, playing with and building things — is one of the best ways to learn. Particularly to learn about thinking and algorithms and problem solving and so forth.
