Just got back from a great evening at the LondonWebStandards – with 2 excellent talks from Anna Debenham and Chris Mills who spoke about the state of web education at the moment. It was quite a sad picture – not enough changes within education for web, outdated practices being taught, inflexible school systems – a sad state of affairs.
However, there are changes in progress and lots of sharing and improvement happening – so I thought I’d share the slides from Chris which sum up the main points nicely and include some references to the solutions being put in place – a light at the end of the tunnel :)
