Just an aside from the “animation and instructional design review”


Nice to see Semour Papert being given credit for his great work in what is now known as computational thinking. He inspired my dissertation topic which became using computer programming skills to develop self-regulation and self-efficacy (1998). Back then there was not a blending of computer science with other sciences. All was just beginning. Programming has advanced in its acceptance and assistive qualities, but the thinking behind it is now being applied even when computers are not involved in the problem solving.
