Let us hope that "ICT" is dead and buried

We clearly disagree about the extent to which digital technology impacts on disciplines and should therefore impact on school subjects. Whilst we agree that what I've been calling TEL shouldn't be the focus of Computing (the subject).

However I think that digital literacy (my broad definition rather than the narrow technical skills definition) is different to both of the above things and does need to be taught as a discrete subject for reasons already set out in other posts in this discussion.

It seems to me that digital literacy is more important than computer science on the basis that everybody needs to be digitally literate whilst only a minority of folk need to be computer scientists.
