The Future of Computer Science Education: A Glimpse at the Next Step Ahead Through a Leap into the Past

  • Peter Summons
Chapter

Abstract

My aim in this chapter is to identify traditional core areas of computing and to relate the effects of these to educational schemes for computer science. Through this I will attempt to predict future directions of education identified through the prediction of emerging and extrapolated areas of importance in computing.
