At Bank Street from 1984-1986, IBM funded the Cognitive Skills for an Information Age project, which I directed.
With this effort, we sought to build on what we had learned about fostering educational conditions for the learning of metacognitive, planning, and problem solving in the context of Logo programming.
Our approach was to work with educators and children to prototype and conduct research with IDEAan Interactive Decision Envisioning Aidewhich would support upper elementary and older learners in reflecting on choices and criteria for making effective decisions. Here are some exemplary articles:
