In case you missed the announcement on the SQA web site, at final publication in April 2012, the Course title of Computing and Information Science will become Computing Science as a result of feedback. Also, Access qualifications will now be known as National 1, National 2 and National 3.

Also in the news, a great article in TES last Friday for Computing.  And some brief thoughts on CfE on my blog.

  1. Hooray! I also agree that the TESS article on programming skills was excellent. However was interested to find out through school visit and discussion that RGU are intending to drop Alice programming in year 1 in favour of Actionscript 3 for Computing courses. Anyone else know of other institutions rethinking their choice of language?
