Title: “What Constructionists Don’t Know about Constructionism”
Andrea diSessa holds a Ph.D. in physics (MIT) and is Corey Professor Emeritus at University of California, Berkeley. He is a member of the National Academy of Education and a Fellow of the American Educational Research Association.
His research centers on the role of intuitive knowledge in learning science, and the development of computational literacies. He is the prime designer of Boxer, a medium to support computational literacy. diSessa wrote the books Turtle Geometry: The Computer as a Medium for Exploring Mathematics, with H. Abelson (1981), and Changing Minds: Computers, Learning and Literacy (2000).
He has authored over 100 journal articles and book chapters, including “Local Sciences: Viewing the Design of Human-Computer Systems as Cognitive Science” (1991), “Toward an Epistemology of Physics” (1993), “What Do ‘Just Plain Folk’ Know about Physics” (1996), “Conceptual Change in a Microcosm” (2017), and “Computational literacy and ‘The Big Picture’ concerning computers in mathematics education” (2018).
