  • you regular lead teacher hub sessions with the core team and other lead teachers to apply the latest pedagogical content knowledge for CS to the senior phase qualifications.

  • a flexible set of National 4 & 5 appropriate materials and activities in year one of PLAN C and then for Higher in year two.

Aims for the launch day

  • Provide insight into the very latest research on how to teach novices programming more effectively and overcome common difficulties.

  • Allow you to directly experience and then explore a range of active learning techniques that can enhance your existing National 4 and 5 Computing Science courses.

  • Give you a range of materials that you can use with your Computing Science pupils to enhance their level of understanding in the software design and development unit.
