FD 2015: What happened to Logo?

Jul 18, 2015 @ 2:30 pm - 3:00 pm

The Logo programming language was popular for teaching children among educators and academics during the heydey of the Apple II. Logo promised to revolutionize education through the limitless microworlds that personal computers enabled. By the end of the 1980s, there was growing disillusionment with Logo. Two Logo vendors, Terrapin and LCSI, survive today, but the world of Logo is much different. Why did the excitement about Logo fade? Where can we see the influences of Logo today? What happened? How can you use Logo today?
