In a radio interview yesterday, SoCS Head of School Dr David Cobham discussed government proposals to introduce a new Computer Science curriculum in secondary schools. Talking to Rod Whiting at BBC Radio Lincolnshire, Dr Cobham discussed education secretary Michael Gove’s proposal  to re-introduce a focus on programming into the GCSE computing curriculum. The long term aspiration is to build the knowledge economy and exploit the advantage of having a better technology-trained workforce. The interview focused on the benefits that children could gain from such a curriculum and the issues that it posed on terms of staff training for teachers. The interview will be available on the BBC iPlayer  for one week from the date of transmission. The item begins 2H:38m into the programme and lasts for around seven minutes: http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/p00pm9f6
