The CEPIS Informatics Education expert group (formerly Computing in Schools SIN) strives for the recognition of Informatics/Computer Science as a vital subject in school curricula. It recommends that Informatics should be included in compulsory school curricula like other subjects such as mathematics, physics, and chemistry, and thus provide students with the skills needed to participate in today’s increasingly digital society.
The group meets several times a year, either online, in hybrid (using Zoom) format, or face-to-face. The group’s last face-to-face meeting was held in November 2022 at a national conference in Milan, Italy. Currently there are eight countries participating in the expert group. Members have backgrounds in Informatics, education and technology.
For the moment, the invitation is open only to CEPIS members.
