Just wanted to wish you all a wonderful start to the school year! I look forward to hearing many updates :]

Hello everyone,

Congratulations on your completion of CCOW!!! Thank you all for making this such a wonderful experience :] 

I am currently putting together a video recap of the Symposium and would love additional photos and videos from the event. If you could share links to any content from the event, that would be amazing.

"... For example, primary school children from the age of five will no longer be taught word processing skills, but instead will be allowed to design and test computer programmes they have written themselves. Kids of this age will also all be taught internet safety, how to spot danger online and how to keep personal details private in computing lessons.

At secondary school, pupils will continue their learning by being taught a variety of different programming languages as well as learning about networked computer systems, the relationship between hardware and software."

If anyone is interested in taking a breather from Scratch, I encourage you to check a recent TEDx Talk by a former professor of mine about the myth of designing education for the average.
