Open peer commentary on the article “Designing Constructionist E-Books: New Mediations for Creative Mathematical Thinking?” by Chronis Kynigos. Upshot: Involving professionals in the design of c-books is a feasible and promising way for constructionism to influence large-scale educational practice. However, the role of learners as readers of c-books was unclear in Kynigos’s account. Here I review the critical role that learners play in the conceptualization of educational environments, and I make recommendations for centering learners in the process of collaborative constructionist design.
