Last week on Twitter I mentioned that Logo was my introduction to computers and programming. I also mentioned that people going to ISTE should plan to attend Dr. Gary Stager’s presentation, Logo at 50: Children, Computers and Powerful Ideas. I, like many others, were introduced to computers and programming through the use of Logo many years ago. Logo still exists today and is the framework for many of the more popular programming and coding apps available today.
In the hand-out embedded below (click here if you cannot see the document) I highlight twelve free sites and apps that you can use to help students learn to program.
