      Logo is still used today :) The school our children attends uses robots and Logo from Terrapin:

        Can you give me more information about this program? What kind of robots do you use? and what applications? I am looking for something similar for my daughter.

          The school uses these:


          … to introduce kids to programming concepts via push-button “programming”, leading up into Logo programming for the older children.

            Thank you! much appreciated.

      It is interesting that people always consider Logo for teaching programming. In Mindstorms, Papert clearly writes the intention was to teach geometry. He also describes a different „Newton-turtle“ to teach physics.

        Is it still considered today? I believe Python has taken over that role. Maybe it depends on the age of the student.

        I do believe that producing pictures is inherently more fun than “sort this list of words”, even if the latter is what everyone who programs ends up doing eventually.

          As an anecdote, I have been taught a version of Logo in 5-6th grade. This was 10 years ago, but I believe it is still taught in schools here.
