When computer science was first taught in some American and European schools in the 1970s, generally as an optional subject for older pupils, computers did little unless given instructions in a specialist language. So classes focused on programming. But the advent of ready-made applications and graphical user interfaces in the 1980s saw a shift to teaching “ICT” (information and communications technology): how to use computers for word-processing, creating presentations and the like. The result was that pupils left school with little idea how computers work. England’s ICT curriculum has come in for particular criticism. It “focuses on teaching how to use software, but gives no insight into how it’s made,” said Eric Schmidt, Google’s chairman (and a director of The Economist’s parent company), in a lecture in 2011. “That is just throwing away [England’s] great computing heritage.”

Technology in schools will no longer be micromanaged by Whitehall,” Gove said back in 2012. “By withdrawing the [current ICT] programme of study, we’re giving teachers freedom over what and how to teach.”

 

The new programme was drawn up by members of the British Computer Society (BCS) and the Royal Academy of Engineering, with a fresh emphasis on computer science, and specifically on coding and computational thinking. It’s a move that could redress years of neglect and close an urgent IT skills gap, but are schools ready to handle the change?
