Interim Report of the LOGO Project in the Brookline Public Schools: An Assessment and Documentation of a Children's Computer Laboratory. Artificial Intelligence Memo No. 484.
Papert, Seymour; And Others
The LOGO activities of a group of 16 sixth-grade students, representing a full spectrum of ability, are documented with a view of developing ways of capturing the learning possibilities of such an environment. The first group of eight subjects completed 25 closely observed hours, extending over seven weeks, in a LOGO classroom situated in a Brookline School. This is an interim report on these observations designed to exhibit the content of what has been learned, and insights into both the variety of cognitive styles of the pupils and the variety of learning situations available to a teacher with which to respond to different pupil styles and analysis. The current state of analysis is presented without any effort to prune the considerable redundancy which has been generated in the process of doing this multiple-cut exercise. (Author)
