At school where they already have been doing programming education continuously, ·Students deal with programming education positively. ·The result of Question 3 (about effective) was consistent with their evaluation. Teachers at school with the same condition think about programming education the way as follows. ·Teachers expect programming education to cultivate their students’ abilities of logical thinking.
