The Brookline LOGO Project. Final Report. Part III: Profiles of Individual Students' Work. A.I. Memo No. 546. LOGO Memo No. 54.
During the school year 1977/78 four computers equipped with LOGO and Turtle Graphics were installed in an elementary school in Brookline, Massachusetts. All sixth grade students in the school had between 20 and 40 hours of hands-on experience with the computers, and the work of 16 students ranging from intellectually gifted and average to learning disabled was documented in detail. This volume contains 16 separate profiles written by the classroom teacher which describe the LOGO experiences of each of the subjects in some detail. Each profile includes a statement of how the child is perceived as a student in the regular academic areas of the school, a description of what the child learned in the LOGO classes, an analysis of each child's particular strengths and problems, and the particular teaching strategies that were considered appropriate for each child. Most of the students' work related to computer graphics, but a few also undertook non-graphics projects. The 16 students spanned a wide range of interests, abilities, and cognitive styles.
