Ordnance Survey: Digimaps for Schools

The Ordnance Survey Blog announces the OS’s Digimap for Schools service, which is set to replace the OS’s Free Maps for 11 Year Olds program (previously), which is closing down after this year. Maps are a mandatory part of the curriculum in England and Wales; I can’t help but wonder whether going digital is necessarily a good idea. (How much of the education system is computer-based nowadays?)
