Something is very wrong when experience of Microsoft Office is seen as ICT. Office is useful if you want to be a secretary,or work in marketing (though brush up on other IT skills). I expect my IT staff to be able to use Office because it is useful if they need to write or present anything. Driving is also useful to get between offices. Is that ICT too?
Even something like html is now virtually useless on its own. You need to master php,css, Microsoft SQL, MySQL and, for Microsoft houses, php.net and Sharepoint should not be forgotten. Are you teaching all those?
Communcations? Analogue and digital telephony, switched and routed networks, wifi. Any of those?
IT infrastructure. Windows 7, Linux, Windows Server, VMWare, Citrix? None of those?
Software development. Visual Basic, C++, C#?
Of course, schools cannot do all of this but a simple, decent BASIC programming course (try BBC BASIC which can still run on Windows) is a great start. Why not an introduction to servers, networks, email systems? Why not learn to build a few? Demo licences are easily downloaded.
As long as people can making the direct connection between tools like Word Processors and IT then we can look forward to a growing insignificance on the world stage. R Pi offers a cheap way to get proper IT back into schools (where you are going to have to do some meaningful work to get it going, starting with learning Linux) but we need to shift our mind set as well. I know there are some great ICT people out there in schools (I have met some). Let's push them to the front and really see what we can achieve.
