Coding and Programming
Although there has always been a history of programming in some schools and by some teachers and students, there is now a much greater emphasis in schools, globally and the UK. Initiatives and lobbying by the tech industry have raised awareness of this in schools and in the UK it is now a required part of the Computing National Curriculum
