Informatics for All
The ACM Europe Council, Informatics Europe and the Council of European Professional Informatics Societies (CEPIS) have launched an initiative whose main purpose is to give due recognition to Informatics as an essential foundational discipline for education in the twenty-first century.
The report Informatics Education in Europe: Are We All in the Same Boat? describes the findings and recommendations of the Committee on European Computing Education (CECE), jointly established by the ACM Europe Council and Informatics Europe to bring forward a detailed picture of the state of basic education in Informatics, Digital Literacy, and Teacher Training in these disciplines in Europe.
The ACM Europe Council and Informatics Europe have collaborated on a report that builds on an earlier document, "Informatics Education in Europe: Are We All in the Same Boat?". The report, "Informatics for All: The Strategy," aims to establish Informatics as an essential discipline for all, a subject available at all levels throughout the educational system. The strategy is also summarized in a one-page document.
