Computers, cognition, and development: issues for psychology and education
Presents the implications of recent advances in information technology for applications in the field of psychology. Brings together work from researchers in artificial intelligence, education, and developmental psychology. Discusses issues posed by the increasing spread of information technology into society, including the effects on young children. Explains how insights that arise from the achievements of artificial intelligence may help define new computer environments for human learning. In particular, attention is focused on the debate between the advocates of the procedural language, LOGO, and those of the logic-programming language, PROLOG. Looks at computational metaphors of mental activity in cognitive science and developmental psychology.
