SW education is an education for cultivating talented individuals who solve problems logically through computational thinking and is operated as a regular school curriculum in the elementary, middle and high school education environment since 2019 in Korea. Educational programming languages use languages for block programming, text programming and app programming, and education is carried out using the SW education tools such as the unplugged education, robot and sensor board, Arduino, and drone. This paper is to analyze the current status of educational programming languages and education tools utilized in the elementary, middle and high school SW education curriculum, and to analyze the functionality and effectiveness of educational programming languages and education tools in the SW education curriculum so that it can help in selecting the educational programming languages and education tools in the elementary, middle and high school SW education and utilizing in the education curriculum design for prospective teachers.
