Key Concepts in Informatics: Algorithm
Szlávi, Péter; Zsakó, László
Acta Didactica Napocensia, v7 n1 p39-47 2014
"The system of key concepts contains the most important key concepts related to the development tasks of knowledge areas and their vertical hierarchy as well as the links of basic key concepts of different knowledge areas." (Vass 2011) One of the most important of these concepts is the algorithm. In everyday life, when learning or working we continually make and execute algorithms, design series of activities and information flow processes, which make this world fully comprehensible only for those who are familiar with the basics of these activities. We believe that the algorithm is the most important concept in informatics. If it is overshadowed in IT education, you will get a distorted picture, which might lead IT education astray. In this article we concentrate on what an average student is supposed to learn about the concept of algorithm and what scheduling is to be applied to achieve our aims in years 1-4., 5-6., 7-8. and 9-10.
