Computers and You!
Visit the Computer History Museum Website and post a link of interest from the timeline. http://www.computerhistory.org/timeline
This is Seymour Papert, who has gone on to be a contributing factor for the progressive technology program in the State of Maine. More info. on Papert who I found on the timeline for 1967 . . . . "Seymour Papert designed LOGO as a computer language for children. Initially a drawing program, LOGO controlled the actions of a mechanical "turtle," which traced its path with pen on paper. Electronic turtles made their designs on a video display monitor.
Papert emphasized creative exploration over memorization of facts: "People give lip service to learning to learn, but if you look at curriculum in schools, most of it is about dates, fractions, and science facts; very little of it is about learning. I like to think of learning as an expertise that every one of us can acquire."
