      Papert Reading Response

                  I found Papert to be very interesting. I think this is so because of my math background and I believe that much of what he is saying is true. I believe the Papert is saying that we can use computers to help students learn math and gain confidence in that ...

        Turtle Blocks Code

        I am attaching a screenshot of my code as well as a link to a screencast so it can be seen in action. I set my code up to draw the Olympics symbol (besides colors). I also set up the colors to be randomly chosen each time and I used an "If-Then-Else" statement and a "Greater than&q...

          Turtle Blocks

          Turtle Blocks was a fun and relatively easy platform to work with. Being that this is my first coding class, I especially found watching your tutorial video helpful prior to playing around and making my own creation. I look forward to seeing what everyone was able to create!

            Seymour Reading Response

            Papert wrote a logo program where he created a star field as opposed to writing each one by hand. The start field isn't more difficult than drawing shapes, it's not better, it's just different. When he first wrote it, it was more complex but then he simplified it when teachers sh...

              Turtle Blocks

              I enjoyed using Turtle Blocks more than Etoys. I found it more user friendly, but still challenging enough where the tutorial video was extremely helpful. After playing around with it for a while, I thought a cool activity would be asking kids to code "Hi" as an introduction activi...

                Playing with Turtle blocks

                Originally, I wanted my turtle to say hello. Then I turned it into saying "hehe". I also realized if I play the blocks I created forever, it makes a pretty circle design. Check it out!

                  Turtle!

                  This version of Turtle is so much better than what I used to use on the Apple IIc back in the stone ages! More user friendly, but still challenging in that you must be able to logically think through each turn, each angle, and each color. I found myself acting like one of Papert's students an...

                    Week 3 - Seymour Reflection

                      Seymour Papert, Mathematician, offers an ideology of learning that spans all subject areas and is based on a child-centered education model. In essence, Papert believes that in order to for students to truly embrace knowledge it must be integrated into their culture. He states "top...

                      Turtle Block

                      I looked online for more tutorials and found some very interesting artistic designs. I learned to appreciate commands a lot more. Unlike the hokey pokey dance and us humans, we already start shaking a body part before the command is given. As for questions with Turtle Block, I think more tutorial...

                        Week 3- Seymour Papert

                        Through the readings and the video on Papert, I have learned about who he is, including his early life experiences that had an influence on his beliefs later in life. When Papert was two years old he was very interested in gears. As he grew older he used his knowledge of gears to formulate his be...
