The new computing curriculum is on its way, whether we like it or not… and, coincidentally, I do. I think part of my relative happiness that the IT curriculum is being updated stems from the fact that I like technology.
I’ve always loved a good gadget and taught myself to use a couple of different ‘coding languages’, albeit to a fairly simple level. And the new curriculum, as we all know, includes a section on computer science. The nerd in me loves this!
I was lucky enough today to attend the Hull IT conference 2014 and got to see some pretty cool stuff. I’m not going to blab on too much about it all – a lot of it was marketing – but I’ll mention a couple of things I’ve taken away from the day.
