        Week 1 Blog Post

        After reading the provided materials, watching the video and playing around with Logo, I have to agree with many of the beliefs Papert presents. Last year I was a geometry ICT teacher. The first few moments of the video immediately reminded me of the transformations unit, specifically the rotatio...

          Video of My Turtle Blocks Creation

          I was able to make my Turtle Blocks form a design through a pattern of steps, change colors, change noises (a frequency from high to low played every time a color changed)*, and add text.

                    “You can be the gear, you can understand how it turns by projecting yourself into its place and turning with it. It is this double relationship~both abstract and sensory~that gives the gear the power to carry powerful mathematics into the mind” (Papert, Mindstorms, 8).   ...

                        This week I was excited to explore Turtle Blocks again. When I explored it in the past I remember it looking like a foreign language to me. I am happy to feel more confident with programming in Turtle Blocks and thought about how it could be used in my classroom with my students. Being a kinderga...
