Gove’s BETT Speech Wordle


Michael Gove , Education Minister , was a keynote speaker at BETT 2014 this year and I know this was a speech about computers and technology but I see no mention here of special needs.Thankful to see he mentions teachers a lot but notice his largest word is “new” — hmm. New has now become a relative word on Planet Gove. New seems to be bright and shinny things and computer programming . Computing programming is a good skill in itself but without the other side of the equation of understanding, learning and making use of your skills this equation won’t balance up. It’s a case of throwing out the baby with the bath water. Why not keep both Computing & IT??
