    Computer and information science is one of the fastest growing areas in the world. This results in the fact that the way of teaching this field in schools is equally important. They have been doing this abroad for many years now, but in Slovenia we have only recently started boldly marching on their footsteps - as is tradition - a few steps behind them. Motivation for the master's thesis is thus to improve the teaching of informatics in Slovenian gymnasiums. The aim was to create and evaluate learning materials on the subject of teaching algorithms for the subject of informatics, which is taught in the first year of Slovenian general, classical and professional gymnasiums. In the framework of the master's thesis, for each subject, we studied modern and effective methods of teaching it and produced a school learning preparation. We then prepared and carried out a workshop for each educational preparation. The purpose is to measure the effectiveness of learning approaches from the point of view of written examination of knowledge. With the help of evaluation of the obtained results, the training preparations were additionally improved. In the end, we uploaded learning preparations to the online classroom of the NAPOJ project, where they are available to all teachers of information science in Slovenian secondary schools.
