A Bright New Future for ICT Education in Schools?

Ajehals writes "Tim Dobson, the Pirate Party UK Education Spokesperson puts Michael Gove's planned changes to the ICT curriculum into a personal perspective:

As someone who now works in the technology sector but who suffered from poor ICT tuition at school, I hope that the government is able to deliver on these proposals; it is something that students in the UK deserve, that the economy of the UK will benefit from and something that has been ignored for too long. I have been campaigning for changes like these since 2009, they are very welcome and I am keen to see how they are implemented and developed.

With the launch of codeyear and the Guardian's campaign to address issues with digital literacy, it is good to see the government giving this part of the curriculum the attention it both needs and deserves. Indeed this initiative comes at a great time and with the Raspberry Pi — an affordable British learning computer for exciting young techies — becoming available soon."
