TES article on Higher Computing and Computer Games

Last Friday's edition of The TES included a story about possible changes to the Higher Level Course in Computing. It also mentions the new NPAs in Computer Games Development, which are in production. The "Ms McLaren" quoted in the article is, in fact, Julie, the lead developer of the new awards, so it was good that the journalist spoke with the main person behind the development.

The interest in this aspect of the subject is great to see. The subject lost some of its shine some years ago but new areas such as computer games, social networking and online safety seem to represent something of a resurgence in the subject. The portfolio of vocational Computing awards is pretty wide, and includes lots of interesting areas such as all of the afore-mentioned topics plus networking, web design, digital media and website enterprise.
