China plans to include computer coding in curricula for primary and middle school students to help them learn about information technology and develop digital learning and innovation skills, the Ministry of Education said.
During its ongoing curriculum revision launched early last year for compulsory education - first to ninth grade - the ministry made a preliminary decision to include coding in information technology courses, it said in a statement posted on its website.
The ministry said that it has issued guidelines to promote and regulate coding education, adding that it has asked local education authorities to make early plans to train IT teachers to be adept in coding.
