I'm wondering if anyone I know knows anyone involved with Computing at School Scotland ?  I would hope, with the Curriculum for Excellence still under development, and the good exemplar of the proposed Computing at School Curriculum, that there is some chance of influence the curriculum design for the better.

There doesn't seem to be much detailed information on the current state of the CFE course specification.  The Higher course seems to include two components: Software Design and Development, and IT Design and Development.  Without further detail, it's hard to judge whether these cover the underlying concepts or whether they are just practical units.  The Higher is classified as a technology course (rather than a science course), which is understandable but might also indicate a shying away from the more academically challenging aspects.
