  • In this paper, I analyzed on the differnce of thinking for SW education of SW education research schools' students in 2016 according to background variables - school level, period of SW education and time of internet using. Also, I analyzed the corelation between student's thinking for SW education and background variables. As a result, I found the lower school level and the longer period of SW education, the more positive thinking for SW education is. Also, I found that when time of student's internet using are 1 hour or 2 hour, student's thinking for SW education is the most positive. But I confirmed that the period of SW education and time of student's internet using didn't give any influence to student's think for SW education. Based on result of analysis, I proposed necessities for research of method that method middle school student feel interesting on SW education and method that student keep interesting on long-term SW education.

  • Recently, there is an increasing number of universities in which SW education is operated as a liberal arts education regardless of major. In this paper, the survey is conducted to analysis the factors affecting the non-majors students' perception of the necessity of SW education through a case study of SW liberal arts by gender, college, and SW learning experience. As a result, men, students of social science college, and students with SW learning experience strongly agreed that SW education for non-majors is essential. 'SW education is very helpful in studying my major' was analyzed as a necessary condition of SW education for non-majors. Especially, the difficulty of SW learning did not affect the recognition of the necessity of non-majors SW education. If the SW liberal education is based on the SW technology that helps their major, it will be expected that the improved learning motivation due to majors-relevance will deepen a consensus on SW education.

  • This study is conducted to analyze the parents' perceptions of policy and needs of the elementary SW education. We surveyed in targeting 273 parents who did not participate living in big and small cities and 74 parents participated in the SW-related event. And we analyzed the differences in policy and the need of the SW education of the groups. Analysis showed that parents who participated in the SW-related events were considered to be positive about education than parents who non-participated in the SW-related events. They who participated in the SW-related events also recognized that the SW education needs for the child' s future. Based on these results, in order to include the SW education in formal education curriculum in elementary education, we have to conduct a variety of SW-related events aimed at parents. And we could see the effort required for the promotion of the general public people.

  • As the influence of SW spreads, many countries concentrate on SW education policies for women. Although the SW education is strengthened, study on the curriculum suitable for women is still insufficient. The study conducted 422 middle school students to investigate differences in perception of SW by gender. It consisted of 207 male students and 215 female students, and survey analyzed in three categories : SW environment, SW education awareness and SW career interest. The analysis showed that SW education for female students is necessary to increase the confidence and interest in them, and that SW education opportunities for female students should be expanded so that interest and expectation of information education should be increased. In addition, it is necessary to introduce and promote SW related career path which can increase interest in SW related job and SW related major. This study is meaningful in that at this point when the revised curriculum begins to be applied, there are differences in perception of informatics and SW by gender, and that it is necessary to study the SW curriculum suitable for gender for effective achievement.

  • Globally SW education is becoming increasingly important, and the government is preparing for this trend as a mandatory implementation of SW education in the 2015 revised curriculum. However, because the 17 hours of annual education offered in the course of Practical Arts cannot have great educational effects, this study attempted to develop a robot-based SW education program related to other regular subjects. Also in order to verify the effects of the program related to future competencies, problem solving ability and communication ability were selected as key factors. The paired t-test was conducted to examine whether there was a significant difference between pretest and posttest results. As a result, it was verified that the subject-related SW education program using robots was effective in improving students' problem-solving ability and communication ability. In addition, after the program was completed a survey was conducted, and it was possible to confirm that students could have positive perception on SW education.

  • In this study, we conduct SW education using robot in elementary school, to examine the effects of SW education using robot and identify differences dependeing on the presence of assistance teacher. In order to achieve the purpose of this study, SW education using robot was conducted to 29 students. After collecting data, we examined mean difference using matched pair t-test and ANCOVA. Our results show that SW education using robot significantly improved CT and attitudes toward robots. CT, however, was not significantly improved in control group. Further, although improvement in attitudes toward robots was not associated with presence of assistance teacher, presence of assistance teacher did play a role in improvement of CT. This study was investigated effects of the SW education using robot and identify differences depending on the presence of assistant teacher, and expanded the understanding of the SW education using robot.
