WHITE PAPER ON COMPUTER EDUCATION
While the world is being run solely on computers & more sectors are getting completely impacted by the emerging technologies, breaking into areas and opportunities unimagined, we need to take stock the resource which powers this revolution. While everybody wants to do computer science failing which they join the IT industry after doing graduation in any engineering branch. It is imperative that we take stock of the computer science education and take remedial measures to create a digital generation, the creators of tomorrow, out of computer science grads / professionals.
Computer Science has gained entry in our school curriculum quite sometime back. Has it impacted the students in gaining interest in computers way beyond the average user – cut paste variety. Have we been able to create a schooling ecosystem wherein we are able to entice kids into coding as early as 5 or 6 years of age; the Larry Page and Sergey Brin of tomorrow. A generation comfortable with coding as it is language of the day. The comfort with coding to cloud computing has to happen before the kid moves out of school.
An all encompassing White Paper on Computer Education in India is the need of the hour, inclusive of critical component of school education in this field, how it propels or hinders in creating truly computer literate generation. Moving further the engineering branch of Computer Science, the horizontal extension of it in the last decade or so. What is the computer education infrastructure and the limits on its delivery? What is the best case scenario of the percent ecosystem and what is its connect with the changing demands? Will R&D be possible with the present lot in emerging world ecosystem of automation? How Human Resource limits product creation and innovative collaboration?
This white paper would be the main decision making tool for India of tomorrow, which as in any other emerging nation, will have to base on this high end technical resources and ever emerging positive, proactive and dynamic IT ecosystem; infrastructure and otherwise. This remedial lateral intervention of today will change the growth trajectory of tomorrow.
WHITE PAPER IS THE BASE FOR A BLUEPRINT OF CHANGE IN THE IT LANDSCAPE AND THE NATION.
