Sir Jim also argues that the primary curriculum needs to reflect changes in children's experiences and it should recognise that many young children have developed computer skills in their own homes.
He says the level of lessons in information, communication and technology (ICT) currently taught in secondary schools should now be taught to primary-age pupils. :D:D:D
Such technology skills should also be used in other lessons, recommends Sir Jim.
This could include using the internet for research, word-processing work and making podcasts.
"Good primary teaching deepens and widens children's understanding by firing their imagination and interest in learning. One highly promising route to meeting the demand for in-depth teaching and learning is undoubtedly emerging through ICT," says Sir Jim.
"The primary curriculum needs to be forward-looking."
