Press release, France. The Public Education and Computing association welcomes the publication on Eduscol of the “Computing and Digital Sciences” program project for the Terminale S class at the start of the 2012 school year:
Everyone is aware of the many initiatives taken by the EPI in favor of computer education in high school.
This program project has four main parts which are the fundamental fields of computer science: Representation of information, Algorithmics, Languages and programming, Material architectures (computer, networks, initiation to robotics).
Societal issues, such as the introduction to intellectual property issues and software licenses, an integral part of the program, are anchored in the scientific content.
This program project is in line with the proposals (scientific approach and content) that the EPI and the ITIC-ASTI-EPI group have made for high school (Seconde, Première and Terminale): http://www.epi.asso.fr/blocnote/blocsom.htm and with the proposals "for the training of teachers in charge of the Computer science and digital sciences specialty in terminal S", co-signed by JP.Archambault, G.Berry, G.Dowek and M.Nivat: http://www.epi.asso.fr/revue/editic/asti-itic-prog-prof_1006.htm
