ICT In UK schools 'Just resting'
An intersting little piece in The Register here: UK.gov: ICT in schools ain't dead, it's just resting ? The Register
The UK government denied today that it was dropping IT entirely from the national curriculum while adding that tech contracts would be more bite-sized and flexible at some point soon.
Back in January Education Secretary Michael Gove said
he was axing the current ICT
classes and getting folks together for one of those well-loved consultations to change way technology is taught.
He denounced the existing IT lessons as "dull and demotivating", and by binning the previous programme of study to draw up a new one, teachers will in the meantime be free to teach how and what they wanted "revolutionising ICT
as we know it".
However, Conservative MP for Pendle Andrew Stephenson was somewhat baffled, and this week asked Gove to gauge the impact of dumping computer skills
from the curriculum on the future employability of Blighty's youth.
