Abstract: An important argument for teaching children computer programming (in Logo) is the contention that learning to program can foster the acquisition of generalizable cognitive skills and problem-solving abilities. In this contribution we discuss some recent developments in the research with respect to this "cognitive effects hypothesis"; several guidelines for the design of future studies are derived.
