DISMANTLING GENDER STEREOTYPES AND GENDER IMBALANCE IN SCIENCE AND ENGINEERING
ICT used to focus purely on computer literacy – teaching students, how to word-process, how to work a spreadsheet, how to use programs already obsolete; just like teaching children how to use fax machine or typewriter.
Our new curriculum teaches children computer science, information technology and digital literacy: teaching them how to code,and how to create their own programs; not just how to work a computer, but how a computer works and how to make it work for you.”
What Will Your Child Be Learning
Let's get them coding at school
Children will be learning what algorithms are, which will not always involve computers
Slightly older children will be creating and debugging more complicated programs
Once children enter senior school they will be using two or more programming languages
