Mitchel Resnick is the
director of the Lifelong Kindergarten research group
at the MIT - Media Lab. He develops innovative technologies
to help people, especially children, to learn in a new
and creative way.
During our interview we discuss the relationship between
creativity and learning, as well as the importance and
the use of computational media for creativity.
Mitchel Resnick discusses, particularly, how computational
tools can expand the learning process and how computers
can support a culture of creativity. He talks about
his vision on the creative society and, finally, he
brings our attention on the use of ecological thinking
strategies to solve design problems.
