Python overtakes French as the most popular language taught in primary schools (UK) | Ben Rossi | Information Age

Python overtakes French as the most popular language taught in primary schools (UK) | Ben Rossi | Information Age | ANALYZING EDUCATIONAL TECHNOLOGY | Scoop.it

The programming language Python has overtaken French as the most popular language taught in primary schools, according to a new survey released today.

The survey, which sampled 1,000 five to 11 year olds, 1,000 11 to 16 year olds and 1,000 parents, was commissioned by Ocado Technology to assess progress made since the new Computing curriculum was introduced exactly a year ago today.
