Abstract

Media Lab Europe's Everyday Learning group and initiatives associated with the Empowering Minds project are developing new strategies for broad access to technologies and appropriation of the ideas they engender. Here we include examples of sensor-equipped portable devices for registering environmental conditions, a form and forum for developing public opinion, materials enabling personal engagement with computational ideas, and a model of professional development that sustains Constructionist uses of technologies in schools.
