When England introduced the subject of computer science to all of its primary and post-primary schools last year, its policy makers employed a kind of long-term vision that is pretty rare in government circles.
Their stated aim is to equip their children with "computational thinking and creativity to understand and change the world".
In employing this kind of vision England joins Israel, Estonia, Germany and Denmark, among others, in formally adopting computer science as a schools subject.
