The present study analyzed the elements of future-oriented development of Korean style-based software education for more effective operation centering on the software education that will be implemented as a regular curriculum subject from 2018 in South Korea. As for the analysis methods, unstructured data collected from the Web were managed in a big data store and trend analyses were conducted through the frequency counts of words utilizing the pretreatment technique. Based on the results of the present study, the proportion of positive elements has been higher thus far. However, the proportion of negative elements has been increasing over time. Therefore, it could be seen that for long-term development of software education, rather than coding centered education, the proportion of the learning of the ability to think computing would act as an important variable for development factors.
