UK Research Findings

As part of giving up to one million BBC micro:bits for free to every year 7 student in England and Wales, year 8 student in Northern Ireland and S1 student in Scotland the BBC also commissioned an impact study and found that... [BBC]:

  • 학생들의 90% 이상은 마이크로비트를 이용해 누구나 코딩을 배울 수 있다고 답변했습니다.
  • 학생들의 86% 이상은 마이크로비트가 컴퓨터과학(정보과학)을 더 재미있게 배울 수 있도록 만들어 주었다고 답변했습니다.
  • 여학생들의 70% 이상은 마이크로비트를 경험해 본 후 컴퓨팅(정보)과목을 배울 것이라고 답변했습니다.
  • 선생님들의 85% 이상은 학생들이 컴퓨터과학/활용을 보다 재미있게 즐기게 되었다는 의견에 동의하였습니다.
  • 마이크로비트를 경험해 본 선생님들의 반 이상은, 선생님으로서 보다 자신감을 가지게 되었다고 답변해주었습니다. 특히, 컴퓨팅(정보) 교육을 매우 어려워하는(잘 모르는 비전공) 선생님일수록 더 그러했습니다.
