Programming lessons are
held in schools since February 2017 within the framework of the project “Free
Lessons” initiated by the Ministry of Education and Science of Georgia. At the
first stage, 11 public schools were involved in the project throughout Georgia.
School clubs of coding were created by the partnership of the Ministry of
Education and Science of Georgia, Microsoft Georgia and Educare Georgia, where
pupils began to study the fundaments of programming through arrangement of
games and funny applications. The lessons included computer activities and the
programming elements introduced in real life. At the end of the program the pupils
arranged individual games and applications. Expansion of the program is planned
from the next academic year.
programming and computer sciences are the most demanded professions throughout
the world and the demand significantly exceeds the delivery. In Europe, 15
countries are already implementing programming and computer sciences in the
main curriculum of the school. Programming is not only the skill for people who
want to work in the technology sector, but also for the pupils in order to
develop logical thinking and problem solving skills.
