Apart from having a lot to squeeze in to a short amount of time, the course was a great success and the participants (teachers from KS2 and KS3!) left with confidence to begin delivering physical computing lessons with their classes.
There will be more of these courses put on in the very near future; there will also be the opportunity to loan (for free) a class set of Crumble kits for your school from your local computing hub. Click here for more information: NCCE Physical Computing Kits for free hire
On Friday 9th July, the West Country Computing Hub will be launching it’s Festival of Computing. A one-day, online conference for primary teachers from across the South West.Whether you’re leading computing in your school, or are new to the subject, the conference will cater for those in different positions with their provision of computing, with content for both key stage 1 and 2 teachers.
Free to attend, all content will be recorded and available for delegates to access after the event, providing the scope to revisit and focus on key concepts, or catch up on sessions you were unable to join. With various strands to choose from, including coding, online safety and cross-curricular computing, teachers will be able to choose a pathway of workshops that is best suited to their individual needs and continuing professional development priorities.
It is our intention, to provide a wealth of inspiration for primary teachers to take back to their own classrooms!
