Teaching the Kids Logo



  • Has anyone used Logo with their kids? Logo was the language for getting little kids into programming in the 1980s. I missed the Logo years having gone to a private school where we had no computers. I was aware of Logo because I saw it on television and stuff about what other schools were doing.

    Now I am trying to find good resources for my daughter and my first stop is KTurtle from the KDE project which I know from my days of heading IT for a private school circa 2004. I have that and a few other tools running on Linux Mint. I know that there are a lot of "Logo in the browser" tools available now too.

    What have you found to be good?



  • Got this running in just a few seconds 🙂

    reset
    repeat 12 {
      repeat 4 {
        forward 60
        turnright 90
        }
      turnright 30
      }

  • And a great variation...

    reset
    repeat 12 {
      repeat 8 {
        forward 40
        turnright 60
        }
      turnright 30
      }

  • Here is a look at KTurtle itself with the IDE and Canvas visible.
