Implementation of Software Curriculum for General Education
As the intelligent information technology society has arrived, the need for software education has become more and more important. In Korea, software education has been introduced in the middle and high school curriculum, and software education has been strengthened in universities accordingly. As the need for software education for not only Computer Science majors but also non-CS majors became necessary, universities began to review and reorganize software education courses. In college, software education other than computer science major is taken care of in the Liberal Arts. It is difficult to organize software curriculum into various courses in stages. It is necessary to cover the overview of computer science and the programming language as basic contents, and to present a variety of elective courses to learn additional contents according to students’ major and interest areas.
