Alice Programming Language

Logo for Alice Programming Language
Alice is a 3d graphics programming environment intended to be a gentle first introduction to students ranging from 6th grade to college, typically students who typically would not take (or pass!) a programming course. Unlike previous no-typing programming systems, such as LogoBlocks and Stagecast, Alice allows students to gain experience with a wide variety of programming structures including looping, conditional statements, lists, and recursion.

Alice is a fantastic application for teaching programming to digital arts students and other visual learners. It covers all essentials of programming. Due to its open-source nature of the material, Alice has a few bugs and limited support via a wiki. Using the Alice application will help your learners to master programming in a fun fashion.

The lesson material on the website is a place to start developing your syllabus. However, there are textbooks and videos available from textbook publishers and on the web that do a more thorough job as support materials for your lesson plans.
