But it appears that this may not be a problem only in Norway. During the weekend I read the report "Shut down or restart?" from the Royal Society. This report is about how ICT-training in British schools has become a threat agains Britain's future as a technology leader. It also suggests that the topic should be replaced by
- digital literacy
- Computer Science
- Information Technology.
Well, here comes the exiting news - the UK department of Education has decided that ‘Harmful’ ICT curriculum set to be dropped this September to make way for rigorous Computer Science.
What will a country like Norway do to keep up with the advantage the UK will get in technology, innovation and business? Nothing, I fear!
