IITP are calling for a new Learning Area in NZ Secondary Schools; encompassing Digital Technologies at NCEA level, and Computational Thinking and Digital Literacy at the primary and lower secondary levels (or more accurately, a continuum from one to the other). This would see Digital sitting alongside Maths, Science, English etc as a core area, with each of the DT strands, or possibly a reduced subset, a subject in their own right.
