Abstract

The current informatics education in Korea is based on the guidelines for ICT education announced in Aug. 2000, which was very timely considering the need to utilize the infrastructure that had been constructed. Still, the essential question regarding informatics education as a tool for enhancing the learning effects and solving problems in daily living has been persistently raised. This study resolved the problems related to the informatics education implemented in Korean primary and secondary schools and considered various conditions for implementing the integrated informatics education. An integrated informatics curriculum designed to enhance problem solving capacity was also proposed. Finally, the new guidelines for ICT education announced in Dec. 2005 were introduced.
