  • Jeremy:\n- The DfE do NOT think it is their role to provide a vision for ICT – they want to see a consensus emerge from the experts in the field (industry, HE, schools) about what the (very thin) PoS for ICT should look like.\n- The Computing and Schools Working Group, containing members from Microsoft and Google, have proposed a Computing curriculum. NAACE (the subject association for ICT) have also drafted a curriculum, and have chosen to retain use of the term ‘ICT’ to describe the subject.\n

    8. 8. Next Gen.Livingstone Hope Review This review criticised the school ICT curriculum, saying that it focuses more on “office skills rather than the more rigorous Computer Science and programming skills which high- tech industries like video games and visual effects need”.The review received support fromkey Government ministers.
    9. 9. ICT in SchoolsOfsted Report 2008-11ICT was rated good or outstanding in nearlytwo thirds of primary schools inspectedduring the period; however, the mediareporting focussed on the poorerperformance in secondary schools.Lack of teacher capability in ‘key topics’ suchas programming is singled out as aparticular concern, along with a “lack ofattention to the needs and interests of moreable students”.64% decline in those taking GCSE ICT (from2007 - 2011).
    10. 10. Royal Society ReportComputing in SchoolsKey recommendation is that ICT should be‘restructured’ into three distinctive components:• ‘digital literacy’ (“the ability to use computersystems confidently and effectively”)• ‘Computer Science’ (“the study of how computerswork”)• ‘Information Technology’ (“how computers areused to solve important problems in business andindustry”)Recommends that the term ‘ICT’ is no longer used.
