Abstract

This paper presents a study carried out with a group of students from a robotic club, where they have used CodeCubes, a hybrid interface that combines physical paper cubes with Augmented Reality (AR). CodeCubes, intends to promote computational thinking through exploration and experimentation. The intervention, which we report here aimed at assessing children’s interest and motivation for these types of interfaces, as well as identifying possible interaction difficulties with CodeCubes. The results indicate that the children were motivated to work with CodeCubes, and that the physicality of the interface combined with AR can potentially promote hands-on learning.
