Developing Problem Solving Skills of Primary Age Children within a Logo Environment.
Martin, Patricia B.
This practicum addressed the importance of the development of problem solving skills in primary age children. Students need to practice recognizing the problem, deciding what steps are necessary in solving the problem, evaluating the solution, and revising the steps, when necessary. Summer camp computer students who were entering second grade practiced these skills in the EZ Logo environment while duplicating specific shapes and creating original shapes. It was determined that the Logo environment was an asset to the practice of problem solving skills. The document includes the purpose of the project, a brief literature review, a summary of the methods used, results, and recommendations. Appended are the pre/post-tests, teacher survey, results of activities, and samples of student graphics. (CW)
