School Seminar: The computing education revolution in England: four years on


Abstract 

This talk will look at the change in the English national curriculum that replaced the "unambitious, demotivating and dull" ICT with a computer science heavy computing. How has the change impacted access to digital education across England since 2014, what are the successes and where are digital divides starting to emerge? Using data from the DfE's national pupil database we will cover student access and results at KS4 and KS5.
