Computing - Matching Education to Requirements

I participated at this conference on the Computing subject and its fit with societal need.
When Jun 13, 2006
Where Cambridge

The thesis of the conference was:

Applications to study Computer Science related degree courses are collapsing.  The term ‘crisis’ is not being under-used in this context.

We believe that these effects are the symptoms of a deeper confusion of identity within our subject.  It is clear that change needs to be brought into our schools and colleges to:

  • motivate and inspire
  • innovate rather than stifle
  • connect together the various strands of IT teaching at different stages of the education system
  • clarify the skills and knowledge required at each stage to ensure successful progression.

Lewis Carroll describes a fictional map that had:

"the scale of a mile to the mile."

A character notes some practical difficulties with such a map and states that:

"we now use the country itself, as its own map, and I assure you it does nearly as well."
— Sylvie and Bruno Concluded, Lewis Carroll, 1893
