referring to a language that encourages children to talk about:
- their ideas
- their questions
- their strategies for finding answers and a deeper
Students explore and test their ideas

We think our products are great! But don't just take our word for it,
here's what teachers have to say...
"I was first introduced to Logo about 20 years ago at the University of Nebraska. About 10 years ago when the opportunity came up to teach a 6-week exploratory class for seventh graders, I knew right away that I wanted to use MicroWorlds! Now that MicroWorlds EX is out, the students are not only experiencing computer programming at their level of expertise, but I firmly believe that MicroWorlds builds a strong foundation towards a future computer science career."

"MicroWorlds EX is all any teacher would need to create a balanced,
challenging technology curriculum. The programming element of
MicroWorlds EX is the perfect compliment to other areas of the
curriculum that develop problem solving and logical thought. My students
from Kindergarten to Grade Six are enthusiastic about the projects that
we develop together. The turtle is our favorite amphibian."

"I have been teaching LOGO for 12 years now and I love the MicroWorlds
software. I have made sure that at the school where I am currently the
Technology Coordinator, P.S. 11 in New York City, we have always
purchased a site license for this software. Last week when we did a
MicroWorlds EX presentation at the the Apple Computer Store in Soho, as
part of School Night."

"(...) We use MicroWorlds EX with 2nd through 7th grades. Our youngest
students learn drawing commands, animation, and simple programming
concepts. In 7th grade we use MicroWorlds EX to explore game theory and
design. MicroWorlds offers us a unique environment for channeling our
students natural creativity into exciting and thought provoking
projects. (...) I would say it is the most valuable piece of software in
our Grammar School computer curriculum."
