Press Release: National Curriculum Think Tanks

Author: Aga Kelly
Regional Think Tanks on the new National Curriculum - be sure to have your say!
Naace Thinkers come together to debate the future of ICT in Education.

Naace, the ICT association, is delighted to kick off the first of its half term Think Tanks in Birmingham on Tuesday 22nd February, followed by London on 23rd and Bradford on 24th.

 

Naace will be responding to the National Curriculum Consultation issued by the Department for Education and has called together representative members across all phases of education to consider its response.  The groups, facilitated by members of the Naace Board of Management, will endeavour to construct coherent, well structured arguments to support the inclusion of ICT in the National Curriculum, both as a subject and across the curriculum, to ensure our learners are prepared to compete in the global digital economy of the future.

 

Naace will look to its members to lead a campaign to encourage as many organisations and individuals to submit a response supporting the inclusion of ICT in the curriculum before the deadline on 14 April 2011.

 

If you are interested in supporting this campaign you should contact office@naace.co.uk to receive updates following the Think Tanks this week. Naace encourages all people who value ICT in education to do two things - write to their MP and complete the consultation document. This is the time to take action.

 

Full details are available at www.naace.co.uk/events/curriculumthinktanks. Follow the think tanks on twitter @naace.

 

Naace would like to thank North West Birmingham City Learning Centre, Institute of Directors in Pall Mall and the Challenge City Learning Centre in Bradford for hosting these events.
