#NoCapitulation: How one hashtag saved the UK university strike

After weeks of freezing picketing at more than 60 universities across the country, news broke on Monday evening of a deal between union leaders and university bosses. Dejected university staffers — managers, librarians, lecturers and other workers — thought they'd once again lost the battle to protect their pensions.

Cynical about Apple’s move into UK schools? Well, it turns out they need all the help they can get

Apple, Microsoft and Google are muscling their way into British classrooms, but rather than alarm at industry interference, teachers are welcoming their support. They're desperate for good computing course materials. That's why, two years into the new computing curriculum, teachers are almost uniformly enthusiastic that Apple has extended its Everyone Can Code educational programme.

About

Nicole Kobie

You may have seen my work at PC Pro, where I edit the Futures section, on Wired UK, where I'm a contributing editor, or in WebUser, where I write the news pages. I also regularly contribute to Teen Vogue, The Outline, CityMetric, New Scientist, Alphr, Vice's Motherboard, IT Pro and Cloud Pro, Computer Shopper, and the Telegraph, and have written for Mental Floss, Ars Technica, Trusted Reviews, MacUser, Computer Active, The Calgary Herald, the Guardian, and more.

I’m a creative, hard-working digital and print journalist, currently specialising in technology, science and transport stories, but happy to write about anything -- even Theresa May coughing.

I focus on high-quality news and features stories, explaining complicated topics with clean, precise writing. I work quickly, write accurately and, perhaps most importantly, hit my deadlines.

Aside from writing and editing, I've had training in investigative journalism, data journalism and photojournalism, and used to be a regular on PC Pro's podcast.
