Abstract

The introduction of computational thinking into primary/secondary or K-12 education has been widely attempted. In Japan, programming education will be introduced into primary school in 2020. The role of parents in primary education is highly important, and their attitude towards education has a considerable influence on children’s attitudes. To investigate parents’ concerns regarding programming education in primary school, a preliminary questionnaire survey has been conducted as a first step of the study.
