Blocks to Robots: Learning with Technology in the Early Childhood Classroom (2008) is an educational guide book by Marina Umaschi Bers[1] that introduces the idea of learning with technology in the early childhood classroom.[2]

Research shows that attitudes about science, math, and technology start to form during early education. This book shows how to successfully use technology in the classroom, using a constructivist approach to teaching and learning. Bers focusses on robotic manipulatives that allow children to explore complex concepts in a concrete and fun way (Bers,2008).
