Analogical Reasoning: A Cognitive Consequence of Programming?
Zirkler, Dieter; Brownell, Gregg
Computers in the Schools, v8 n4 p135-45 1991
Undergraduates in a computer literacy class were pretested on analogical reasoning skills. One section then received LOGO programing instruction, and the other section received nonprograming instruction on computer uses in education. Posttest results indicated that analogical reasoning skills development is a consequence of LOGO programing and that analogical reasoning is important to programing problem solving.
