The drivers for the computing curriculum

Simon Humphreys from the subject association Computing at School talks about the new Computing curriculum.

In this short film, Simon talks about how Computing at School (CAS) evolved as a grass roots organisation to help teachers improve the quality and quantity of computing taught in schools. He goes on to talk about the evolution of the computing curriculum which started in September 2014, giving a valuable insight into the context for the change from ICT to Computing.

Dave then covers more recent developments, including how teachers of computing can be supported by CAS and the wider network. Dave also provides context to the computing curriculum and its relevance as a subject.

Now that the curriculum has started to bed-in, what are your thoughts and reflections? Please add a comment to the discussion below
