Abstract

As the importance of computing technology is emphasized, Korea has revised the educational curriculum to teach SW education compulsory at the elementary and secondary school level. For successful SW education, it is very important not only to require an educational environment and educational materials, but also to obtain the capacity of the teachers who are responsible for SW education. However, due to the lack of research on specifically examining the present state of teachers’ SW competencies, there are many deficiencies in establishing a concrete teacher’s training and a support plan for SW education. This study is to develop test tools and apply to measure a common sense about a computer, the latest IT technology algorithm design and a programming ability for the purpose of evaluating the SW competency of current teachers. As a result of the study, the understanding of common sense about a computer and the latest IT technology is very high, on the other hand the algorithm design and programming ability were analyzed as low. Therefore, the implications for SW education teacher’s training and a process of prospective teachers’ training are derived.
