I'm happy to see discussion of Logo continuing. There is a lot of research on
Logo, and it's amazing how a few early studies still dominate people's
impressions even though later research indicated that Logo IS indded a great
problem solving platform.

Anyone interested can get our own research of this research, either from:

Michael Tempel
Logo Foundation
250 West 57th Street, Suite 2603
New York, NY 10107-2603

Or we'll send you a version published here:

Clements, D. H., & Meredith, J. S. (1993). Research on Logo: Effects and
efficacy. Journal of Computing in Childhood Education, 4, 263-290.

(Just e-mail me for a copy.)

We need more research at the high school level.

I've also WRITTEN a verion of Logo with Julie Sarama (previously Meredith),
that is specifically designed to support the NCTM Standards and make kids' Logo
experiences more mathematical. We can send more information on that too, if
you like. I'd be interested in your advice.

FD 100!
