Progression from easy uses of computers to logo
I just read a interesting article: "Computers in Schools: 10 Points to
Avoid Past Errors" at
The it is very short. The summary says "There are good reasons to
choose the easiest possible uses of computers at the early stages, and
there are even stronger reasons to pursue relentlessly a policy of
upgrading these uses as more experience is acquired." Logo is mentioned
as a worthwhile later use of computers after they have been introduced
to teachers a drill and practice media.
Has anyone been part of a concious effort to move a school along a
progression like this? How has it worked? This article was a
refreshing change from the usual equations of "logo=good" and "drill and
practice = bad".
