Explorations in LOGO Mapping with Children


History and Social Science Teacher Volume 22, Number 1,


Reports efforts to investigate use of LOGO as mapping aid. While finding LOGO motivational, the authors conclude (1) children did not transfer skills from computer to other situations, (2) younger students appeared to be too young to benefit from the qualities of LOGO, and (3) claims of mental relationship between the graphics cursor and the children's bodies are overstated.
