This podcast features a recording of Gary Stager’s final session at the Learning 2.0 conference in Shanghai, China, on September 15, 2007. The title of his session was, “Ten Things to Do with a Laptop – Learning and Powerful Ideas.” The description of this session in the conference program was: A paper entitled, “Twenty Things to Do with a Computer,” was published in 1971 by Seymour Papert and Cynthia Solomon. Few of today’s schools, with or without laptops, satisfy the goals of that thirty-five year- old document. This keynote invokes the challenging vision of the earlier document, updates it and presents ideas for using laptops in ways that offer unprecedented learning adventures across K-12 and various subject areas. A broader vision of using computers as intellectual laboratories and vehicles for self- expression is equally appropriate for educators with one or one hundred computers in their classroom.
