Title: The BEACH Microworld, Standard Objects and Cuisenaire Rods, Introducing baby Katy
Text commentary: These clips show Peggy’s comfortable use of the Beach microworld, at about 16-17 months of age.
The computer used here, a TI-99 PC, was the MIT Logo Project development machine; when the Lab shipped TI-Logo to Texas Instruments, Seymour Papert released the machine for use in my developmental study of Peggy for my creation of what we came to call computer based microworlds.
