ICT Education Future Here Now

Greetings from the Great Hall for Parliament House in Canberra, where Prime Minister Julia Gillard,  just officially opened the NICTA "Tech-fest" and announced an agreement between NICTA and Infosys.

Earlier an "ICT Skills Panel" discussed how to get more young people into the ICT industry, what skills they should have and how they are educated. I became a little annoyed that the panelists talked as if there was no progress on ICT skills training and e-learning in Australia. As it happened I was responding to a question from one of my students for the ICT Sustainability course I run on-line at ANU and was sending out a proposal for a new coruse on "Government 2.0 Technology and Techniques".
