Curriculum - Advancing Understanding of the Roles of Computer Science/Informatics in the Curriculum.  

Report contributed to by Dr Jason Zagami to the EDUsummIT 2015 on 14 and 15 September 2015 at Bangkok, Thailand.

Zagami, J. (2015, September) Curriculum - Advancing Understanding of the Roles of Computer Science/Informatics in the Curriculum. In L. Wing (Ed.).

This ebook is a collection of summary reports of the thematic working groups (TWGs) of  EDUsummIT  2015.  EDUsummIT (International Summit on ICT in Education) is a global knowledge-building community of researchers, educational practitioners, and policy makers committed to supporting the effective integration of research and practice in the field of ICT in education. 

EDUsummIT 2015 was co-hosted by UNESCO Bangkok (the Asia and Pacific regional bureau of UNESCO) and Curtin University, and sponsored by Blackboard. The theme of EDUsummIT 2015, Technology Advanced Quality Learning For All, had a special focus!on the integration of digital technologies in education in Asia Pacific countries.

Thematic Working Group 9 developed a response to Curriculum - Advancing Understanding of the Roles of Computer Science/Informatics in the Curriculum.

At EDUsummIT 2015 it was argued that the major rationale for including Computer Science as a subject in the KI2 curriculum are economic, social and cultural. The economic rationale rests not only on the need for a country to produce computer scientists to sustain a competitive edge in a world driven by technology but also on the requirement for Computer Science enabled professionals in all industries to support innovation and development.
