  • UK dis-application ICT as a subject name carries negative connotations of a dated and unchallenging curriculum that does not serve the needs and ambitions of pupils. Changing the subject name of ICT to computing will not only improve the status of the subject but also more accurately reflect the breadth of content included in the proposed new programmes of study Tuesday, 1 October 13
  • I remember being at school and using early computers. Yes, I was in computer club - and I loved it. I think we’ve lost some of that sense of joy and excitement in computing, and have just become focused on just training kids to use Windows. We want to bring some of that excitement back. September 2013 Elizabeth Truss Parliamentary Under Secretary of State for Education and Childcare Tuesday, 1 October 13
  • Coding - one of the essential skills of the 21st century - will now start at age 5. We are aiming to develop one of the most rigorous computing curricula in the world, where pupils will learn to handle detailed, abstract computing processes and over-11s will learn 2 programming languages (one of which must be textual).

  • Computational Fairy Tales The ant paused for a moment while he thought. "It is the algorithm that we use," he finally replied. "Algorithm?" asked the grasshopper. "A set of steps or instructions for accomplishing a task," explained the ant. "Like when a carpenter builds a chair, he uses an algorithm that includes measuring, cutting, smoothing, and hammering." "What task does your algorithm solve?" asked the grasshopper. "Does it solve the problem of having too much time during the summer?" He chuckled out loud at his own joke. Tuesday, 1 October 13
