Wayhey, another UK guy!
What are your thoughts on the National Curriculum and whether it stays up-to-date with emerging and important technologies?
This was about 10 years ago, but my I.T. education was horrific; it was Excel and nothing else.
Wooo! Safety in numbers :P
This was about 10 years ago, but my I.T. education was horrific; it was Excel and nothing else. - This is so reminiscent of my education too!
In a nutshell: the curriculum has come a long way (since our days) and is heading in the right direction -- the government released a statement that money (£84m) is being put into training 8,000 teachers, which should really help with the delivery!
Ohhh and OOP has been introduced to the 16-18-year-olds now, so things like functional programming should only be... say... a decade away ;)
We're a place where coders share, stay up-to-date and grow their careers.
We strive for transparency and don't collect excess data.
