Constructionism—the word with the N as opposed to V–shares Piaget’s ConstructiVist connotation of children’s learning as actively-building knowledge structures irrespective of the circumstances of the learning environment. But Papert considered the learning environment, the learning tools and culture and how these impact thinking and learning. This is why he playfully changed the V to an N in the mid-80s. He stayed intellectually-committed and theoretically-connected to Piaget, but he also profoundly-differentiated his theory of learning from that of Piaget–inspired by the computational tools he created and the cognitive sciences and thinkers of MIT in the 80s. – Idit Harel.
