Integrating Mandated Logo Computer Instruction into the Second Grade Curriculum.
This program was developed and implemented to promote higher-level thinking skills and problem-solving skills and to strengthen the understanding of mathematical concepts in second grade students through the use of the Logo programming language. The objectives for this study were that 70 percent of the target students should demonstrate the basic Logo turtle commands; construct geometrical shapes; solve problems through discovery; and write a simple program. The target group of second graders participated in a 12-week period to learn Logo through pre-lab activities; hands-on experience in the computer lab; and follow-up activities. All the program objectives were met with the target group improving dramatically in the specific areas. Included in the appendices are the curriculum essentials framework; the pre-study survey and questionnaire; and the phase exams for each step of the program. (Contains 11 references.) (Author/JLB)
