Abstract–This paper explores the significance of the advent of educational programming languages for the manner in which Computer Assisted Learning software is designed and produced. The notion of prototyping Computer Assisted Learning software in an educational sense through such languages is introduced. Particular consideration is given to the role of Logo in this context. Examples concerned with the development of foreign languages software and a general purpose modelling system are given.

This paper allowed us to discuss the effect of our tools on our practice - a difficult area for discussion in a multi-disciplinary team of educators, not all of whom felt comfortable with the tools of the trade.

Lewis Carroll describes a fictional map that had:

"the scale of a mile to the mile."

A character notes some practical difficulties with such a map and states that:

"we now use the country itself, as its own map, and I assure you it does nearly as well."
— Sylvie and Bruno Concluded, Lewis Carroll, 1893
