Led by Darren Brown (Computing Science Teacher)
Computing Science is a major part of STEM and the DYW agenda with job projections in a wide variety of fields projected to grow into the tens of thousands for the next generation. There are challenge questions in HGIOS 4 asking about how all schools are covering Computational Thinking, Computer Science and Digital Literacy. As well as Benchmarks Computing Science and Digital Literacy have completely revamped Es and Os.
This CPD will be a very hands-on session to have a go at various materials and systems that are fun, simple and creative for any practitioner teaching any age of pupil Computing Science. You will need to setup a few online accounts with passwords on the day. We will be looking at materials and systems such as Code.org, Barefoot Computing, Weebly Web development, AppShed App Development, Scratch Programming, Lego Mindstorms, micro:bits… also hoping to run sessions in Wick and Fort William.
