ICT OUT, COMPUTER STUDIES IN.

Discussion in 'Computing and ICT' started by bingocheater, Jan 11, 2012.

  1. So how is this going to alter our lessons.

    Can't wait to teach Java to myset five.
     
  2. I think that his poorly-phrased speech might be his way of expressing that if we equip them with skills and a mindset, they might be able to create jobs for themselves. Either that or leave the country and make more elsewhere doing the same job?
     
  3. I agree - there are much more visually attractive and appealing ways of introducing programming skills using eg Kodu, Scratch and Alice - and these are important for developing the thinking skills/problem solving skills/logic skills that are transferrable when learners are ready to progress to other languages... the challenge is how we build the progression into new schemes of work.

    And by September? Those who are already using the Programme of Study as a framework and being creative about how it is delivered will keep doing what they have done already..... and it's important that we are able to share that good practice to support those who are less confident about developing what they are doing....
