2005. No. 3. P. 166–182 [issue contents]
The main objective of informatics classes in school is to develop the skills and approaches to solving problems that are required by our modern information society. It follows that the teaching of informatics should start in elementary school, and continue throughout the school years. The author discusses the divide between this theoretical conclusion and the actual state of affairs with respect to early informatics classes. He then describes the most urgent problems in the computerization of elementary schools.
