E-Slate is an exploratory learning environment. It provides a workbench for creating highly dynamic software with rich functionality by non-programmers. Educational activity ideas can be turned into software with minimal authoring effort in the form of interactive widgets which contain specially designed educational components.

E-Slate components are provided as a kit of pre-fabricated, interoperable computational objects. Widgets can be very easily constructed by plugging components in various configurations. The behaviour of both the components and widgets can be programmed in a Logo-based scripting language. E-Slate as a widget factory offers two separate widgets: a) Turtleworlds: a 2d turtle geometry environment that integrates logo-programming with dynamic manipulation and b) Sus-X: a configurable game designing and game playing environment for environmental education.
