On 21 September 2012 E&T reported:
Estonia is seeking to burnish its long-established reputation as tech-savvy 'e-stonia', by teaching children computer coding from the age of seven. The project is being trialled in a small number of schools starting this term in Grade 1, and expects eventually to cover the whole country and all age groups as more teachers are trained and study materials prepared. Bigger European countries will be watching the experiment closely, to see if yet another Estonian initiative is going to set the standard for future technology. The tiny Baltic country of 1.3 million people has long led the way on issues like e-government and e-health. The development of computer skills among the population is seen by many as key to 21st century prosperity. Coding teaches students how to think analytically, which is useful even if programming doesn't suit the student's career path.
