Members of auCompSci,

Tim Norman has brought to my attention a meeting he will be attending
representing Aberdeen Computing Science. He is looking for views on
how Computing and ICT have been taught in schools from students in
order to have some real life experiences to present.

If you would be interested in having your views on this topic voiced,
you can email Tim: t.j.norman@xxxxxxxxxxx

You can read the original message below including a link to a document
providing more information on what is being asked for.

I represent Aberdeen Computing Science at the next Scottish Heads of
Computing meeting, and the principal topic of discussion is how a
Scotland-wide HEI response to the Royal Society's "Call for Evidence -
Computing in Schools" document should be formulated (reference below).
Given that the HEI response is most likely to be from crusty old
professors for whom there was no computing in schools, it would be
very interesting to get views from current students. If you and any of
your colleagues in the Computing Society would like me to take their
perspectives to the meeting, I'd be happy to do so.
The notice on this is short, however. The meeting is Monday afternoon
(4th Oct), and it was arranged this week!
