Microworlds: Building Powerful Ideas in the Secondary School
Jenkins, Craig William
Online Submission, US-China Education Review A 9 p796-803 2012
In the 1960s, the MIT (Massachusetts Institute of Technology) developed a programming language called LOGO. Underpinning this invention was a profound new philosophy of how learners learn. This paper reviews research in the area and asks how one notion in particular, that of a microworld, may be used by secondary school educators to build powerful ideas in STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) subjects. (Contains 4 figures.)
