One advantage of block-based programming while comparing it to “normal” one is that while learning it you get prepares for a job.
Next to clarify if the argument is too weak their exist two other motivations to continue my research:
-The interest in academia for a better distinction in the definitions
-With visual programming students from low-income or/and non-technical families can learn without requiring keyboards and in particular (and maybe more important) keyboard writing skills
Please share your experience 🙂
