Wang, Danli, Zhang, Yang, Gu, Tianyuan, He, Liang and Wang, Hongan (2012): E-Block: a tangible programming tool for children. In: Adjunct Proceedings of the 2012 ACM Symposium on User Interface Software and Technology 2012. pp. 71-72. Available online

E-Block is a tangible programming tool for children aged 5 to 9 which gives children a preliminary understanding of programming. Children can write programs to play a maze game by placing the programming blocks in E-Block. The two stages in a general programming process: programming and running are all embodied in E-Block. We realized E-Block by wireless and infrared technology and gave it feedbacks on both screen and programming blocks. The result of a preliminary user study proved that E-Block is attractive to children and easy to learn and use.
