I'm interested in feedback. If you don't want to join the wiki then leave a comment here or send me email. Thanks.
OVERVIEW OF MY ARGUMENT
The role of language (Vygotsky) and “objects to think with” (Papert) in learning predate the Internet
The theory of embodied active cognition (Clark, 1997) argues that the scaffolding provided by language and "objects to think with" extends our minds from the brain into the environment.
