Introduction 

  The rise of information technology or IT has profoundly affected modern society. Consequently, computers have become devices of daily use. In this paper, the  need  of  computer  science  education  will  be  reflected  on.  The  analysis will focus  on  the  current  situation  of  today’s  society, where IT and telecommunications are playing a crucial role. World Wide Web and advanced IT tools have created new opportunities before computer science. So computers can 

be  considered  as  intricately  interacting  with  human  social  processes,  where learning needs are diversifying everyday


However, in  a  greater social context  of  general education, understanding the  special  needs  of  computer  science  education  is  not  easy.  Conventionally, educational  processes  are  oriented  toward  an  instructions-based  approach (Computer Science Education in the 21st Century, 2012). However, in the case of computer  science,  only  instructions  alone  cannot  suffice  the  purposes  of  the course.  Laboratory-based  exercises  are  necessary,  and  the  student  has  to practically  handle  the  computing  device.  Constructing  knowledge  on  operating computers  is  thus  the  fundamental  starting  point  of  computer  science  learning. Contextually,  in  this  paper,  social  perspectives  on  general  learning  as  well  as studying computer science will also be detailed.
