I have reintroduced SourceForge.net: XLogo into our 8th grade IT curriculum and am very pleased with the result. Beginning with XLogo is a great way to emphasize the importance of sequencing and logic in the writing of code. Code elegance arises naturally from the need to troubleshoot code (If you can’t read it, you can’t fix it!) and the importance of correct naming and saving (file management) are also easily reinforced through the many small projects that we create and upload to our Moodle course.
