Play Think Learn


“Computers help even young children think about thinking, as early proponents suggested (Papert, 1980)7. In one study, preschoolers who used computers scored higher on measures of metacognition (Fletcher-Flinn & Suddendorf, 1996)8. They were more able to keep in mind a number of different mental states simultaneously and had more sophisticated theories of mind than those who did not use computers”. (Bowman et al, 2001, p.229)
