BBC plans to help get the nation coding
The BBC's director general, Tony Hall, has announced plans to "bring coding into every home, business and school in the UK".
It comes 30 years on from a BBC push to make computing mainstream by putting BBC Micro computers in the majority of schools.
In a speech to staff, Mr Hall said that the initiative would launch in 2015.

I don't get it... Mr Gove says IT is a waste of time.... wants to help the nation code.

Mr. Gove said ICT is a waste of time. Learning how to use Word, and Excel.

He deserves to be shot. He has no idea of the current situation for children... he doesn't even have qualifications for teaching etc, so how would he know how to communicate?

So Learning how to use a word processor properly, be able to apply filters on a spread sheet and use a DTP program to make high quality posters without word art and stupid amounts of different fonts, this is a waste of time?????
Don't get me wrong, although I have no interest in coding what so ever and know enough to get by, it should not replace the entirety of learning how to use a computer efficiently but should compliment and expand on what is already there.
