Seymour Papert invented the term [[constructionist|constructionism]] to describe an educational philosophy that teaches children to '''do''' something rather than teaching them '''about''' something. Some of his early work involved teaching children to be mathemeticians rather than teaching them about mathematics in the traditional way.

Seymour Papert invented the term constructionism to describe an educational philosophy that teaches children to do something rather than teaching them about something. Some of his early work involved teaching children to be mathematicians rather than teaching them about mathematics in the traditional way.

This led to the LOGO language which is a form of LISP without the brackets. This language was developed in conjunction with a device called a turtle which was a small robot holding a pen which could be programmed to draw geometric shapes.
