E-Blocks brings students’ interaction with the software to a new dimension. Students use the sensorial panel connected to a classroom computer to respond to the stimuli and questions presented by our multi-level software. Exciting pictures, songs, animations and games stimulate collaboration and make learning meaningful, successful and a concrete social experience.
E-Blocks makes learning fun and meaningful through its palm-sized blocks. The blocks strengthen students’ fine motor skills and provide kinesthetic feedback that reinforces a concrete learning experience.
Our sensory panel was designed to accommodate up to six students working together to solve challenges presented by the software. E-Blocks provides opportunities for each child to work within a group regardless the knowledge acquired by each student. Each student has a responsibility that supports their teamwork and their learning.
Intellectual Stimulation through Multiple Activities:
E-Blocks software activities strengthen students’ reasoning through problem solving situations. The software also allows students to learn and confirm their own skills across a broad range of activities, all of which use the same sensory panel and blocks.
Multi-sensory Learning for all students:
E-Blocks allows for multiple attempts providing only positive reinforcement, repetition and the collaborative learning every child needs.

Our software enables teachers to modify and/or create their own activities by adding their own images, sounds and contents to individualize students’ learning.
