+ - English schools to introduce children to 3D printers, Laser cutters, Robotics.

Submitted by Kingston
Kingston (1256054) writes "In a radical change to the English National Curriculum, Michael Gove, the Education Secretary has announced ambitious changes to the technology syllabus. Children will be introduced to programming and debugging from the age of 5.

Secondary schools ( age 11 and up ) will be required to have a 3D printer and introduce children to laser cutters and robotics in the design and technology course. The much derided ICT ( Information and Communications Technology ) subject will be overhauled to teach "several" programming languages to children so that they can "design, use and evaluate computational abstractions that model the state and behaviour of real-world problems and physical systems". Are these changes the way forward, or a headline grabbing response to criticism of the ICT course?"
