Computer skills ‘undervalued’:Computer skills are still undervalued in the UK board room, software giant Microsoft claims.

“A solid working knowledge of productivity software and other IT tools has become a basic foundation for success in virtually any career.”

Arguably Bill is only part way there… The idibl project based in the Institute for Educational Cybernetics would argue that the application of online technology to knowledge creation, sharing and organisation of activities is a given in present and future society. Citizens and professionals need an explicit conceptual knowledge of online technologies, rather than a tacit operational knowledge, in order to be most effective as technology change continues.
