This project presents a new version of LOGO programming language developed at MIT by Seymour Papert. This software was developed by me using Java and Java 3D.

Logo Projests (Wiki)
Logo Projests (Wiki)
Gary Stager and I are amassing One Hundred Things to Do with a Computer. This is a collection stemming from work fostered by Seymour Papert and Marvin Minsky and built on research to enhance children’s intellectual, social, and physical development as well as research in artificial intelligence.
We began to explore things to talk with and control.
Here we will focus on projects that teach machines to do things and teach us to do things. Some of these things require not only constructing ways to communicate but also constructing concrete objects with feedback and controls.
From the outset we thought in terms of creating or inventing projects in which a diversity of problems might arise spanning math, science, language, and the social sciences. The kinds of projects making up the original paper have not changed but have grown denser and come from many many people. On this round we offer up not only our own ideas but those that have been floated about by others over the years.

Logo Wiki
Lately I've been reviewing, rewriting and creating a lot of Logo projects which I hope to share here.
But first I am going to post the few pictures and videos I have. Although I started Logo with Seymour Papert and Wally Feurzeig at the research lab of Bolt, Beranek and Newman around 1966, I have absolutely no pictures from that time.

There are also lots of examples and case studies where this software has been used in education ... recommended Other languages (other than English) are available ... German, Portugese, Japanese, French .. great resource to help language teachers to work cross-curriculum.

XLogo : Logo for Mac OS X
XLogo : Logo learning and drawing application built for Mac OS X
LOGO is a dialect of Lisp, and was first developed in the 1970's to be used as a teaching language. XLogo implements a subset of this language, it is freeware, open source, and is designed to be easy to use.

StarLogo (free: Windows+Apple+Unix+)
StarLogo is a programmable modeling environment for exploring the workings of decentralized systems -- systems that are organized without an organizer, coordinated without a coordinator. With StarLogo, you can model (and gain insights into) many real-life phenomena, such as bird flocks, traffic jams, ant colonies, and market economies.
StarLogo is a specialized version of the Logo programming language. With traditional versions of Logo, you can create drawings and animations by giving commands to graphic "turtles" on the computer screen. StarLogo extends this idea by allowing you to control thousands of graphic turtles in parallel. In addition, StarLogo makes the turtles' world computationally active: you can write programs for thousands of "patches" that make up the turtles' environment. Turtles and patches can interact with one another -- for example, you can program the turtles to "sniff" around the world, and change their behaviors based on what they sense in the patches below. StarLogo is particularly well-suited for Artificial Life projects.

Squeak (free software)
Squeak : "Logo on steroids" Squeakland has been developed to offer a variety of fun experiences to people of all ages who use their computers to create. Squeakland is meant to be a playground for developing a community of people who want to work together to invent new media types.
Squeak is a "media authoring tool"-- software that you can download to your computer and then use to create your own media or share and play with others. It is free and downloadable
In English and Spanish

"While you can do simple things almost immediately, don't think that turtle graphics are the limit of the language's capabilities! You can, for instance, create a "3D" wire frame of a building, and then re-draw it from different points of view by changing just a few numbers in one line of the program."
