After the reboot: computing education in UK schools - New report from The Royal Society
The Royal Society has release a new report that reviews what's happened in education since the introduction of the UK computing curriculum in 2014.
It's an interesting read that shows there's more to be done to promote and develop computing education and that "(i)t's future development and sustainability depend on swift and coordinated action by governments, industry, and non-profit organisations".
Yes, definitely an interesting read, specially as there aren't many other similar reports that look at the big picture.
The other interesting news is the announcement by the chancellor or "£100m for an additional 8,000 fully qualified computer science teachers supported by a new National Centre for Computing" more info about that here: https://schoolsweek.co.uk/budget-2017-100m-national-centre-for-computing-to-train-8000-new-teachers/
