Secondary Computing Curriculum in the UK and Wikipedia

584 views

Published on

This is the Computing curriculum, Powerpoint has gone. Where will the information come from? Wikipedia.... Live with it..... Don’t ignore it. Now the students are allowed to ask why things work. Wikipedia is easy to take the hood off. Its all available to see and you can ask questions about it right down to the bit level.
