2011 McGRAW PRIZE IN EDUCATION to Mitchel Resnick for Scratch

I like the way the McGraw Prize in Education is framed, and congratulate Mitchel Resnick on receiving the award for his work on Scratch.

“Technology in education is a great catalyst for change — for creating, managing, and communicating a new conception of learning,” said Mr. McGraw. “This year’s Harold McGraw Prize winners are the embodiment of the transformative impact of technology on improving education. Their innovations are enabling students to learn at their own pace and empowering teachers to inspire and coach.”

Mr. McGraw said, “Digital learning is the opportunity of the century. For many students around the world, technology makes education more accessible, adaptable and affordable. We applaud these exceptional leaders for guiding the way and enriching the lives of so many students.”
