Abstract:


When a learner studies his second or third pro-gramming language, he has to learn its basic con-cepts and its grammar at the same time in a short period, which is a heavy burden for him. We adopt Blockly, a library for constructing a block-type programming environment for beginners, and try to build a programming learning environment for lan-guages other than procedural ones by using Blockly’s dynamic transformation behavior of blocks.
