MicroWorlds Programs by

David Dimsey

David teaches at The Geelong College

I could not figure out in which category to place this example.

drawn by a 4 year-old

4yo.zip 8KB Ziped with Winzip  from www.winzip.com use winzip to unzip

No code in this example.

This was drawn by a 4 year-old who loves playing with MicroWorlds.

MicroWorlds can be used simply as a drawing program before the concept of programming turtles is introduced.

These projects were all created using LCSI Microworlds which is available as a free download. You will need this facility if you wish to look "behind the scenes" at my projects.

Download the demo version

MicroWorlds Pro Demo local copy for fast download
15-Day Trial Demo Download

Please note that this is the Pro version of MicroWorlds
The interface is a little different than the version we have installed in T 316
It is able to read and write the same files as version 2.03
This trial version will enable you to work on the Microworlds Project from home.

What is Logo?

"Logo is the name for a philosophy of education and a continually evolving family of programming languages that aid in its realization."
- Harold Abelson

it is an excellent collection of logo resources

Selected LOGO Bibliography
http://www.beva.org/maen508/intro/biblio.htm - This page has a long list of Logo links and a good bibliography as well.


Going in Circles This is a very interesting interactive essay using Microworlds

What is a circle? When you see a circle, how do you know it's a
circle? When you want to make a circle, how do you do it?


A Microworld is a term coined at the MIT Media Lab Learning and Common Sense Group . It means, literally, a tiny world inside which a student can explore alternatives, test hypotheses, and discover facts that are true about that world. It differs from a simulation in that the student is encouraged to think about it as a "real" world, and not simply as a simulation of another world (for example, the one in which we physically move about in).

E-Slate Microworld Samples
In these pages (1-4) you can find and download various samples of Microworlds constructed with E-Slate. To use them, you have to first download and install E-Slate from the Download area. After that you may open Microworlds (.mwd files) from within E-Slate. Alternatively, you can double-click on these files to launch E-Slate. Note that in some cases Microworlds are accompanied by various multimedia assets (packed in .zip files) which should always be kept at the relative file locations indicated by the installation file structure.

OWL's MicroWorlds in Action website (MIA) is a collection of MicroWorlds projects, lessons, and other resource materials for developing Logo programming skills.



Conference Papers

Logo from the Kindergarten to the University Level

local mirror

Our main goal for teaching informatics from kindergarten to university level for children and for students is to make learning fun and motivating. Sometimes it is necessary to teach informatics without computer and sometimes with computer. One of the biggest advantages of Logo is that it can suit all ages.
