The Japanese government has been promoting IT education, including programming, at elementary and secondary (K12) schools since 2002. We have developed Dolittle, an object-oriented programming language suitable for K12 education, and evaluated it through the teaching opportunities available in classrooms. This paper describes the outline and the future outlook of Dolittle, and reports on the examples of how it is used in classes.
