Seymore Papert introduced this theory in the early 1980’s, and around that time, the first educational robotics program emerged, called LOGO, which he also developed. LOGO is actually a programming language he developed that was used to control robot “turtles”—to move them forward and backward a specified distance, turn right or left a specified degree, drop a pen, and draw.”(more)
