The full title of 'Hacking the Book' is 'Hacking the Book: Skills for the Digital Age'. The Government, spurred on by a damning report about ICT teaching by Ofsted, has recently turned its attention to the way ICT (Information Communications Technology) is taught in school. Did you study ICT at school? How do you think this has helped with your studies at University (if at all)? And in your wider life? Lastly, do you think there is a place for teaching digital skills in humanities programs at Universities?
