Informatics and digital technologies in School Education established 2014

WG 3.1 is focused on the integration of informatics and digital technologies in school education. With 54 members from 23 countries, WG 3.1 intends to provide an international viewpoint to the debate of informatics education in all levels of school pedagogies and to promote the acquisition and updating of appropriate knowledge and expertise by all whose teaching environment requires contact with computer-based systems.




Next event

Dear WG3.1 member,


With 150 participants, and 62 speakers from 31 countries, OCCE 2019 was a success. Many thanks to our Austrian colleagues who hosted the conference. You will receive soon the minutes of our AGM. We also add our TC3 meeting after the conference. Important information below:

Many thanks to Torsten who accepted to help Peter and myself.

The post conference book will be edited by Don Passey and Rosa Bottino and published by Springer. Authors will receive information soon.

Quality insurance for TC3 conferences :
Torsten Brinda is leading a task force dedicated to prepare a kit of documents for TC3 conference organizers.

Next events.
During the TC3 meeting, we explored the possibility of a TC3 conference in 2019 in Zanzibar, Tanzania. If this is possible, the dates would be likely to be around the end of April or early May. A


WG3.1 workshop (open to others WG) on computational thinking will be organized in Paris in June 2019 during EIAH 2019.


Our next conference will be probably organized during the next TC3 event in Tanzania.


I also would like to propose Djordje M. Kadijevich as intending member for WG 3.1. Djordje M. Kadijevich ** is a full research professor at the Institute for Educational Research, Belgrade, Serbia. He holds a PhD in

educational computing and a PhD in mathematics education, and works in the field of mathematics, informatics and statistics education. His papers were published by, among others, Elsevier, Routledge, Springer, and Wiley (e.g. book “Improving Computer Science Education” published by Routledge in 2013).
