UK dis-application ! ICT as a subject name carries negative connotations of a dated and unchallenging curriculum that does not serve the needs and ambitions of pupils. Changing the subject name of ICT to computing will not only improve the status of the subject but also more accurately reflect the breadth of content included in the proposed new programmes of study

! ! ! I remember being at school and using early computers. Yes, I was in computer club - and I loved it. I think we’ve lost some of that sense of joy and excitement in computing, and have just become focused on just training kids to use Windows. We want to bring some of that excitement back. September 2013 ! Elizabeth Truss Parliamentary Under Secretary of State for Education and Childcare

! ! ! Coding - one of the essential skills of the 21st century - will now start at age 5. We are aiming to develop one of the most rigorous computing curricula in the world, where pupils will learn to handle detailed, abstract computing processes and over-11s will learn 2 programming languages (one of which must be textual). September 2013 ! Elizabeth Truss Parliamentary Under Secretary of State for Education and Childcare

Developmental Curriculum Foundation Year 10

Processes and production skills Collecting, managing and analysing data / Creating digital solutions by: ! defining designing implementing evaluating collaborating and managing

Knowledge and understanding Digital systems the components of digital systems: hardware, software and networks and their use Representation of data how data are represented and structured symbolically

Abstraction ! Data Collection, Data Representation and Data Interpretation ! Specification, Algorithms and Implementation ! Digital Systems ! Interactions and Impacts

Abstraction which underpins all content, particularly the content descriptions relating to the concepts of data representation and specification, algorithms and implementation

Computational Thinking which underpins all content, particularly the content descriptions relating to the concepts of data representation and specification, algorithms and implementation

Data: Collection, Representation and Interpretation Data collection (properties, sources and collection of data), data representation (symbolism and separation) and data interpretation (patterns and contexts)

Information Systems Data collection (properties, sources and collection of data), data representation (symbolism and separation) and data interpretation (patterns and contexts)

Specification, Algorithms and Implementation Specification (descriptions and techniques), algorithms (following and describing) and implementation (translating and programming)

Software Development Specification (descriptions and techniques), algorithms (following and describing) and implementation (translating and programming)

Digital Systems Digital systems (hardware, software, and networks and the internet)

Computer Systems Digital systems (hardware, software, and networks and the internet)

Interactions and Impacts Interactions (people and digital systems, data and processes) and impacts (sustainability and empowerment).

Human Computer Interactions Interactions (people and digital systems, data and processes) and impacts (sustainability and empowerment).

Futures Thinking ! Systems Thinking ! Design Thinking ! Computational Thinking

Computational Thinking ! "Computational thinking is a fundamental skill for everyone, not just for computer scientists. To reading, writing, and arithmetic, we should add computational thinking to every child’s analytical ability." ! Jannette Wing

Computational Thinking Skills

Analysis - the process of breaking the complex into smaller parts to gain a better understanding of it.

Decomposition

Pattern recognition

Pattern generalisation and abstraction !

Algorithm Design

Computational Fairy Tales The Ant and the Grasshopper: A Fable of Algorithms (Algorithms) ! Bullies, Bubble Sort, and Soccer Tickets (Bubble Sort) ! Hunting Dragons with Binary Search (Binary Search) ! Binary Searching for Cinderella (Binary Search) ! Goldilocks and the Two Boolean Bears (Boolean) ! The Tortoise, the Hare, and 50000 Ants (Parallel Algorithms)

Computational Fairy Tales The ant paused for a moment while he thought. "It is the algorithm that we use," he finally replied. ! "Algorithm?" asked the grasshopper. ! "A set of steps or instructions for accomplishing a task," explained the ant. "Like when a carpenter builds a chair, he uses an algorithm that includes measuring, cutting, smoothing, and hammering." ! "What task does your algorithm solve?" asked the grasshopper. "Does it solve the problem of having too much time during the summer?" He chuckled out loud at his own joke.

Who is going to teach it?

What about Senior?

Is computer education working?
