ABSTRACT

Due to the Fourth Industrial Revolution, the software field has rapidly emerged as a major core field for the future. In particular, industrial specialized high schools are making efforts to cultivate people of talent in the software field under the policies of the Korean government. However, it has been a long-time concern within the educational fields that there are many learners who give up easily or display a lethargic attitude due to the various characteristics of a programming language. To improve this, students who took a class in programming subjects at an industrial specialized high school were studied. Each class section was divided into class groups that took a course that either utilized a programming training kit or did not. The groups were all classified, analyzed, and divided into two groups according to the results of their pre-tests. The results of this study indicate that quick identification of the learner's characteristics and application of teaching-learning activities is important. Additionally, building the environment needed for learning to have a positive impact on the learners' interests, learning motivation, and academic achievement is also important.
