PESEN - A Visual Programming Environment to Support Initial Programming Learning



Student major difficulties in programming learning can not be easily overcome even if we use non-traditional approaches, like supporting learning with interactive animation programming tools. Special designed tools are needed for some students. In this paper we present PESEN, a learning tool designed to help novice programming students with major difficulties in the development of basic algorithmic and programming skills. With PESEN students can create, simulate and test small programs for proposed problems based on the movement of simple geometrical figures using a small set of basic commands.
