Live: Presentation of "Early coding as modern education component" study findings

The survey was held in April-May 2019.

LB.ua is broadcasting the presentation of the findings of a sociological survey called "Early coding as modern education component".

In April-May 2019, Gorshenin Institute and the EVEREST group of companies conducted a sociological study "Early coding as a component of modern education". During the first stage of the study carried out in April, five focus groups made of parents of primary school students were interviewed in Dnipro, Kyiv, Lviv, Odesa and Chernihiv. Results of the focus group discussions were used to develop a questionnaire for a nationwide survey of parents of 1-11 Grade students in May. A total of 1,000 respondents were interviewed in all regions of Ukraine (excluding the temporarily occupied territories of the Autonomous Republic of Crimea, Sevastopol, certain districts of Donetsk and Luhansk regions). The margin of error does not exceed +/- 3.1%.

Points for discussion:

- How do parents assess the quality of education in Ukraine?

- Do they think it is necessary to add the course of coding to the curriculum, in particular for primary school?

- What stereotypes do parents have with regard to the study of coding in primary school?

- Will knowledge of the basics of coding become a must for various professions in the future?

- How important is it for schools and business to cooperate in order to improve the educational process?

Participants in the event:

- Viktor Sokolov, First Vice-President of Gorshenin Institute,

- Yuriy Chubatyuk, President of the Everest group of companies,

- Oksana Makarenko, adviser to the Minister of Education and Science of Ukraine,

- Iryna Volk, General Manager, Dell EMC in Ukraine and North-Eastern Europe

The event is moderated by Natalya Klauning, Director of Communications, Gorshenin Institute.
