[Human-Computer Interaction] Code Weaver: A Tangible Programming Learning Tool with Mixed Reality Interface
TimeTuesday, 19 November 20199:00 - 18:00
DescriptionWe developed a tool for learning basic programming concepts designed for elementary school children. A tangible user interface of this tool can be programmed by directly combining parts with a physical form. In this way, we attempted to resolve several problems, including the typical obstacles encountered in learning programming languages by small children such as text input via a keyboard, strict syntax rule requirements, and difficulties associated with group learning involving multiple participants. The Interviews and demonstrations at some conferences proved the concept of this tool, which promotes the understanding of programming by cooperative learning via a tangible user interface.
