One year on from the Royal Society’s report on computing education 'After the reboot', the Royal Society, alongside the Digital Skills Partnership, hosted an event to discuss how the landscape has changed, and what more there is to do.
The aim was to look back on the progress made since the publication of the report, as well as looking forward to explore how businesses can support the new National Centre for Computing Education and how industry can best support computing in schools, in particular.
Over 70 business representatives attended and confirmed the interest and commitment of businesses to provide support for computing education. The day ended with a ‘Call to Action’ outlining the types of support needed and how organisations can direct their efforts to provide maximum impact.
Professor Simon Peyton-Jones has produced a blog reflection on the day, which can be read here.
