If you are attending this year's Bett Show (22-25 January), come and find out about the programmes and resources we offer first hand. The consortium is leading a number of sessions at the conference, including our Chair Simon Peyton Jones, who will be speaking on Wednesday 22 January.
Simon's presentation, entitled: The revolution of computing in schools will take place in the Tech in Action area (South Hall) at just after 4 pm. He will be talking about the impact of the new English National Curriculum and the challenges and opportunities it presents for us individually and as a society.
His talk will explore the welcome shift of perspective in computer science education, away from technology and towards principles, and the impact this will have in the classroom and beyond.
