Computer Education

There is a school of thought that is not happy about the apparent sidelining of Computer Education as opposed to ICT in Scottish schools.

According to Edblogger News there is a similar worry in the USA.

My own view has increasingly been towards the notion that Computing should be taught as the science rather than the ICT element of Computer Education and as a minority subject but with close links to further and higher education requirements. This does not appear to be the case at the moment.

Just imagine if Maths in school was not relevant to a Maths degree!
