Interest of Teaching Programming for Primary Preservice Teachers


  • Jean Simon



In the teachers’ training schools of Reunion Island and Mayotte, we have been training primary pre-service teachers in programming for the past three years. Most trainees have not learned programming before during their school and university curriculum. As a result, this subject is new to them and they find themselves in the situation of their own pupils. This is why we asked them, during their learning, to produce a “feelings” notebook in which they explain their successes, their failures and what it brings to them for understanding their own pupils. We held two types of studies of these documents: quantitative and qualitative. The analysis shows that if on the whole, the group of trainees have globally identified the key aspects of a learning situation, it is not the case for each trainee.
