  • The quality of teachers is a necessary and sufficient condition for education to accomplish its goals. As informatics education will be taught as a required subject in middle schools starting in 2018, it is more important than anything else to secure high-quality teachers. Accordingly, this study was conducted to compare the informatics teacher education system of Korea with that of Japan in terms of qualifications, licensing and promotion, qualification criteria for teachers, qualifications for informatics teachers and licensing methods. As a result of the comparison three improvements were proposed as follows: The title of the specialized subject must be changed to 'Informatics,' graduate-level education and minor curriculum training courses must be reinforced to enhance the expertise of the teachers, and the qualification system must be changed in such a way as to promote the expertise of the teachers. The improvements proposed in this study will surely contribute to the quality of secondary school informatics teachers.

  • In this paper, we propose the way to solve the problems of current college of education at university that they are running a curriculum that is insufficient for immediate application to the school. So, we analyzed the application of capstone design which is proven to be effective in various fields, and constructed a curriculum for the development of educational materials to improve the teacher's qualification in the college of education and applied them to the preliminary informatics teachers. As a result, we confirmed that the development class of educational materials based on capstone design is positive for the change of awareness about informatics teacher's qualification, and also confirmed that the students' satisfaction level about class is higher. Based on the results, we discussed the effects of applying capstone design to the college of education. The conclusions are as follows: First, it helps students to improve the teacher's qualification. Second, it is a curriculum that can fill the shortage of student teaching. Third, the curriculum is an effective curriculum for the recognition of the student who is in charge of evaluation, and the teacher who is in charge of the evaluation. Fourth, Capstone design information textbook study class is a method of greatly improving class satisfaction compared to lecture class.

  • The purpose of this study is to obtain the basic data as a part of the knowledge-base to improve the expertise of the informatics teacher in the secondary school by investigating the perception level of the Pedagogical content knowledge (PCK) of the incumbent informatics teacher in the secondary school. For achieving this purpose, the subcategory of the Pedagogical content knowledge(PCK) was divided into 6 fields based on its theoretical background and the developed questions were modified to 31 questions by the experts'checking their contents validity, the survey was carried out targeting 34 incumbent informatics teachers in the secondary school and the result was analyzed. As a result of the measurement of the perception level of the Pedagogical content knowledge of the informatics teacher in the secondary school, the average score in the whole range of PCK was 3.87. Additionally, between two groups of under 10-year-experienced teachers and over 10-year-experienced teachers, the difference about the perception level of the Pedagogical content knowledge of the informatics teacher in the secondary school by work experience was came out as a 0.05 significance level in the educational process knowledge.

  • Information ethics, which is closely related to changes that occur in information technology, had been comprised of one unit ever since the curriculum was revised in 2007 from whence 'informatics' was established as the first course, and has remained so even after the curriculum was revised in 2015. The purpose of this study was to analyze the degree of content knowledge required of informatics teachers who will teach information ethics by distinguishing the subject from general ethics, and to grasp the status of information ethics education at graduate schools of education. In order to achieve this, the information ethics questions of the informatics teacher appointment exam from years 2002 to 2015 were analyzed as well as the curriculums of 32 graduate schools of education. The results of the study revealed that, first, questions related to information ethics were included in 10 exams, since the 2004 exam. Second, questions related to dysfunction were mainly addressed from the beginning of administering the exam but since 2010 many items related to copyrights, information security, and various addictions were added. Third, 11(33%) of the 32 graduate schools of education with informatics teacher training provide information ethics courses. This study is meaningful in that it will help to better understand the changes needed to update the information ethics related questions of the informatics teacher appointment exam, and to present a direction for information ethics education at graduate schools of education.

  • 본 연구에서는 국내 정보 교사가 가지고 있는 교사 전문성의 특성에 대해 고찰하였다. 교사가 가져야 하는 전문성의 여러 종류 중 인지적 영역의 전문성은 학생 성취에 중요한 역할을 담당하기 때문에 가장 중요한 부분으로 볼 수 있다. 교사가 가지고 있는 인지적 영역의 전문성을 교과에 대한 지식, 일반적 교육학 지식, 교수 내용 지식으로 나누어 생각할 때 정보 교사는 세 가지의 전문성을 가지고 있다. 먼저 교과의 내용이 빠르게 변하기 때문의 지식의 개정이 빠르고, 교수내용지식의 많은 부분이 컴퓨팅 도구의 활용과 이에서 발생하는 오류에 대한 내용으로 구성된다는 점이다. 또한 이러한 이유 때문에 정보 교사의 교수내용지식 또한 꾸준히 변화하게 된다.

  • The purpose of this study is to analyze objectively the current state of preparation of SW education in Korea based on the survey of educational technology of elementary and secondary school which is investigated periodically every year. For this purpose, we extracted indicators related to SW education from educational technology level indicators such as human, material, and utilization and analyzed the change in the level of domestic educational technology level from 2014 to 2016. The main results of this study are as follows. Firstly, the ratio of teachers who have informatics teacher certificates among middle school informatics teacher is continuously decreasing from 2014(71%) to 2016(54%), and the number of information and the number of informatics teachers moving from informatics subject to other subjects is steadily increasing. On the other hand, there is a paradoxical situation in which the total number of teachers in informatics subject is continuously increasing for three years. Secondly, the total amount of ICT related budgets for elementary and secondary schools has been steadily decreasing since 2014. Thirdly, The ratio of informatics(computer) related creative activities in elementary schools dropped to 87.7% in 2015 and 84.6% in 2016. Also, the ratio of informatics subject operating school in middle school is gradually decreasing from 34.8% in 2014, 30.8% in 2015, and 28.2% in 2016. Based on the results of this analysis, this study suggested a method for stable settlement of SW education in elementary and secondary public education field.

  • This study is for developing a programming education course to improve pre-service teachers' pedagogical content knowledge(PCK) of programming education. A 40-hour training course was designed with App Inventor, a block-based mobile programming environment, and with problem-based learning method and project-based learning method. After the curriculum was adopted to 12 undergraduate students, the effect of education was tested with a programming PCK questionnaire. As a result, after a 20-hour problem-based learning class, overall score and teaching method score were enhanced significantly. After another 20-hour project-based learning class, content knowledge, teaching method, and curriculum score were improved.
