Westminster Education Forum

The next steps for the ICT Curriculum: basic skills, computer science and the 'wiki curriculum' - part of the Westminster Education Forum National Curriculum Seminar Series

June 2012


Following the Secretary of State's announcement on removal of the statutory programme of study for ICT from September 2012, this timely seminar, scheduled as part of the Westminster Education Forum National Curriculum Seminar Series, brought together stakeholders from the education and technology sectors with key policymakers as schools began to develop their own ICT and Computer Science curricula.
Delegates examined the core ICT skills pupils should be required to understand at each Key Stage, the role Computer Science should play in the new National Curriculum and the development of new Computer Science qualifications. The practical implementation and development of the 'wiki-curriculum' concept (where teachers and experts collaborate in tailoring lessons) was also a focus of discussion.

A seminar publication provides a timely record of proceedings, and acts as a guide to the latest thinking on current policy issues for those unable to be at the event.
