Japanese children will have to learn programming from elementary school

TTO – coding will become a compulsory subject at Japanese elementary schools from April to 2020.

According to Nikkei Asian Review on March 27, Japan is seeking to train a new generation with proficient IT skills to compensate for the shortage of human resources. Children will learn basic programming from grade 5.

The Japanese Ministry of Education has approved a new set of textbooks for this subject on March 26. The set has a number of exercises such as drawing polygons using digital technology or making LED flashes with some basic commands.

Being judged to be at a low starting point in programming education, Tokyo thus wants to create a greater potential of human resources for the technology sector.

To accomplish that goal, Japanese children will have access to computer programming earlier, to help those who are gifted with professional training since childhood.

For example, Tokyo directs alternating LED and polygon exercises in Grade 5 and 6th Grade Science respectively. The goal is to help students have a foundation in writing code (programming) to treat information management, as well as forming technology logical thinking.

Currently, the information technology (IT) industry is increasingly going into social life. International technology competition is heating up.

Three years ago, the Japanese Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry predicted that the country would lack about 290,000 technology workers until 2020. By 2030, this figure will be about 590,000 if the IT market grows at speed. medium.

Many Japanese IT technology engineers are trained or self-taught by the company. More and more private universities in this country open training departments in the field.

However, efforts to bring IT into the curriculum of the public sector in Japan have not achieved much achievements due to many regulatory barriers.

In 2012, programming became a compulsory part of Japanese middle school technology and home economics. At the high school level, programming will appear in the information layer – a compulsory subject, by 2022.

In addition to Japan, South Korea and the United Kingdom, programming is also available from a level 1 training program.
