Special Focus On:
Does an “IT-friendly” environment and computer
science lessons at secondary school level:
• promotes IT and coding skills?
• has effects on the use of social media
Should computer science lessons at secondary
school level be expanded?
How the Use of Modern Media in Class
In Austria all computer science lessons are
obligatory covered by 2 hours per week at the
9th grade only
Students describing lessons learned
• too short
• touch typing
Status quo in Austria
Discussion and Conclusion
• statistical connection between IT-promoting
activities at schools and later IT skills is given
• no connection between a proper computer science
education and an increase of social media usage
Schools that are principally open minded towards the
usage of IT and smartphones, that provide a good
infrastructure, and that especially have coding skills
integrated in their lessons, constantly help raising
and strengthening IT competence of their students.
