Computer Science in the National Curriculum

Research output: Book/ReportBook


These are exciting times for Computer Science Education. In Great
Britain, the US and an increasing number of other countries, we’re seeing
a resurgence of interest in developing pupils’ understanding of how
computers work, how they’re programmed and the fundamental ideas
underpinning computation. The work of Computing at School in the UK,
the campaign and the number of universities offering Computing
for non-specialists courses in the US, great on-line resources for learning
about Computer Science (CS), such as the Microsoft Virtual Academy, and
some brilliant programming tool-kits that make it easier than ever for
users to take control of their computers have all played their role in this.
