The teaching of programming in the Greek education system begins at the secondary level. The aims of the programming syllabus include the attainment of knowledge and skills, which are related to problem solving and the design of algorithms. In order to acquire the students knowledge and skills, the usual approach that is followed is: the use of a programming language of general aim (Pascal, Basic, etc), the use of a professional environment for this programming language, the development of programs that solve problems which treat numbers and symbols. According to researches that have been realized, this approach of teaching programming to beginners constitutes important factor that complicates its learning. In this work we propose a framework of teaching the programming fundamentals to beginners that is based on using LEGO Mindstorms technology. This paper analyzes the results from a pilot research that was carried out on Greek secondary school students.
