While listening to Jean Piaget’s 1964 Cornell address (using the “Speech” tool on my Mac), I played around and “constructed” this image of him, using Scribbler Too. I’m wondering if it was distracting? (Click for larger image.) Piaget talks about the act of knowing. We don’t just absorb knowledge, we must perform operations, modify information, transform it, OWN it. Most importantly, our knowledge is nestled and ordered in relation to other things. “Seriation is the natural, basic operational structure. A number does not exist in isolation. What exists is a series of numbers which constitute a structure…” p S9.
