PattemMagix is a game-like software construction kit. Its constructive-dialogic style of interaction supports learning through playful exploration. In the course of creating colorful tiles and patterns, learners explore geometric operations, like rotation and symmetry. Their moves alternate with automatic moves of the computational device so that the interactions resemble turn-taking in a dialog.
