eduSTAR software - Win > MSW Logo resource
MSW Logo is an educational programming language used for functional programming. Logo's best-known feature is the ‘turtle’, which is an on-screen cursor (derived from a robot of the same name).The‘turtle’ can be given movement and drawing instructions, and can be used to programmatically produce line graphics.
There are lots of ways to use MSW Logo in your classrooms:
• Create and manipulate shapes and patterns on screen
• Create basic shapes on squared paper. Have the children then make a set of logo instructions to recreate these shapes, and
• Ask children to create their initials using logo instructions.
A series of ‘how-to’ handouts for using logo in the classroom can be downloaded from:
Logo in the classroom
Introduce children to basic logo commands such as ‘forward’, ‘right’ and ‘left ‘ by asking one child to guide another child, blindfolded, around objects in the classroom. Have the children replicate their movements using logo.
