Estonian IT Education

ZDNet is offering an interesting article about how Estonia is developing higher education policy to promote its burgeoning It start up culture.

Some of the ideas are quite old,actually. For example, the PPP aspect. And I would argue that Estonia could go much much further in linking its course development with career needs analysis, especially with respect to robotics and the internet of things. And some of it is painfully obvious – the need to bring in the best possible teachers.

Regardless, you have to applaud the effort and publicizing the offort. The idea is not just to graduate more IT specialists. It is to create an entrepreneurial culture that uses IT as a tool..
