My research aims to explore how students perceive the usability and
enjoyment of visual/block-based programming environments (VPEs), to what
extent their learning styles relate to these perceptions and finally to what
extent these tools facilitate student understanding of basic programming
constructs and impact their motivation to learn programming.
