At the West Coast Logo Conference in Los Angeles in February of 1989, Seymour Papert spoke about instruction versus construction. Logo encourages the latter. Dr. Harman's Global Mind Change also speaks of construction, but on a much larger scale. When our students experiment with recursive structures, could they not be bringing some cosmically familiar creative drama into conscious awareness?
