Brian Harvey is Teaching Professor Emeritus in Computer Science at the University of California, Berkeley. He has taught every age from eight to adult, teaching programming to the kids and the teaching of programming to the adults. He is the author of the three-volume Computer Science Logo Style books for teenagers. His recent efforts have been in co-developing the Snap! visual programming language (with Jens Mönig) and the “Beauty and Joy of Computing” curriculum (with Daniel Garcia).
Open peer commentary on the article “Constructionism and Deconstructionism” by Pavel Boytchev. Upshot: Pavel Boytchev’s article calls attention to the fruitful dialectic between building things and taking them apart: No successful construction without deconstruction. Of course by using the word “deconstruction,” he is also implicitly invoking the critical-theory sense of the term, inviting us to deconstruct constructionism. I found the article fascinating on both levels.
