Here is my package on after-school code clubs, where computer professionals are helping children develop programming skills at an early age.
ICT - the main computer studies subject on the curriculum - has long had a poor reputation for teaching nothing more than office skills.
But if the country's future lies in being a knowledge-based economy, how should this problem be tackled?
Schools are now being encouraged to teach children how to programme computers, but teachers fear they may not have the necessary knowledge to do so.
