The knowledge society brings its own challenges and demands upon its citizens. Key amongst these is the need to empower people to become lifelong learners, to reflect upon their own learning, to become problem solvers and to appreciate technology. We record the experiences of an innovative project using a constructionist mindtool approach in a module on logic, robotics, and programming for nontechnical third level students. 2003 IEEE.
