It is perceived that new methods and strategies of education are needed to aid teachers and provoke in students the curiosity, motivation and search for knowledge. Among these new tools, we can highlight learning environments designed pedagogically to teach in a playful way. These new methods are being developed in education, however, they still facing some opposition from teachers who do not detach from the old paradigms. In face of this need, a learning environment was developed with the purpose of assisting in the teaching of algorithms based on problems suggested by the tool and with the possibility of the student to build the programming code that implements a solution to that problem. After its use in a real environment, it was possible to verify with an evaluation questionnaire the acceptance of the tool by the students.
