Lifelong Kindergarten: Cultivating Creativity through Projects, Passion, Peers, and Play is a new book by MIT Professor Mitchel Resnick, Director of the Scratch Team.

In kindergarten these days, children spend more time with math worksheets and phonics flashcards than building blocks and finger paint. Kindergarten is becoming more like the rest of school. In Lifelong Kindergarten, Resnick argues for exactly the opposite: the rest of school (even the rest of life) should be more like kindergarten.

To thrive in today's fast-changing world, people of all ages must learn to think and act creatively--and the best way to do that is by focusing more on imaging, creating, playing, sharing, and reflecting, just as children do in traditional kindergartens.

Drawing on experiences from more than thirty years at MIT's Media Lab, Resnick discusses new technologies and strategies for engaging young people in creative learning experiences. He tells stories of how children are programming their own games, stories, and inventions and collaborating through remixing, crowdsourcing, and large-scale group projects. 

By providing young people with opportunities to work on projects, based on their passions, in collaboration with peers, in a playful spirit, we can help them prepare for a world where creative thinking is more important than ever before.
