VERY EXCITING NEWS **** Ofsted's John Nixon - Keynote *****

Who is the conference for? This event is for educators who teach computing in any setting! Whether you are new to teaching computing in Early Years or have been teaching A level for many years there is something here for you. This is a community event, where we welcome everyone to get involved.

Sessions

  • We have between nine and ten tracks for you to choose from across the four sessions (see here for details)
  • You book your sessions when you book your ticket.
  • We limit the number of participants at each session so that the sessions can be active and hands on.
  • Your choices will be on your delegate badge on the day.
  • Each session is 1 hour long (except for the primary planning session, which is 2 hours).

Sessions cover (but not exhaustive) PRIMM, semantic waves, design, Rosenshine, cognitive load, machine learning, data skills, data analytics sessions, networks, agile, system architecture, programming (of course). There are sessions from Jon Chip, Phil Bagge, Alan O'D, Craig n Dave, Sue Sentance, Paul Curzon, William Marsh, Exam boards to name but a few....

Getting to Gladesmore: Seven sisters tube is a short walk away and there is on street parking around the school. But there are a lot of us attending the conference, so close parking can't be guaranteed!

Teachmeet:  For the first time, thanks to LGFL sponsorship, we have a teachmeet this year (with beer and pizza) (book with your conference ticket).

Lunchtime activities As always lots of lunchtime activities - for you to contribute to - favourite books, sharing student projects, digital health (what resources do you use?), find out about the NCCE, who your new hubs are and get help from the Isaac team on delivering A level.

Charges We charge a nominal amount to cover food and to encourage you to attend. At present we are finding lots of people book tickets for free events but don’t then turn up. As we sell out, this means we turn people away, who could actually come.

Free tickets and reduced-price tickets Thanks to Isaac Computing, if you are an A level teacher and you attend at least one of the A level sessions in room ICT5 and you sign up for Isaac Computing your ticket cost will be refunded. BUT you must attend the session and you must sign up.

The NCCE and The Institute of Coding (IoC) are paying for the food of our army of presenters and helpers and for tech support etc. Please only book a presenter/helper ticket if agreed with Jane (j.l.waite@qmul.ac.uk).

For everyone else, if you book before Christmas, early bird tickets are £25 (£35 after) and please note there will be no refunds (unless we resell you ticket - as we have to pay for food, venue, eventbrite fees and we are having awful problems with low turnouts.)

More on lunchtime activities

1.A level surgery with Isaac Computing. Get the best out of Isaac by talking to the team about resources for your class and about CPD for you.

2. NCCE what can it offer? Meet your NCCE hub leader; all the new London hubs will be with us. Find out about CPD funding, training in London, and how you can help (they are looking for venues to run sessions).

3. Digital health. With Neil Rickus. Neil is gathering resources on the impacts of technology on mental health. If you have any resources to share - please contact me (j.l.waite@qmul.ac.uk), and I will put you in touch with him.

4. Example student projects! Bring along example GCSE and A level projects to share ideas of contexts and content. Perhaps use these during your teachmeet show and tell! Gladesmore is showing its Drone projects. If you have a project to share sign up when you book your ticket.

5. Books, books, books. Always popular, bring your favourite CS (or general teaching) book for others to LOOK at. LABEL YOUR book with your name (and pick it up at the end of the day). These can be pupil facing books, such as Chicken Clicking or teacher books, such as Sue Sentance’s fabulous Computer Science Education book.

More about the NCCE's Accelerator Programme

The Computer Science Accelerator Programme is a professional development programme, which is designed to support teachers to improve their knowledge of computer science and to deliver the whole GCSE curriculum. The free face-to-face and online courses have been created to help teachers gain confidence in the classroom by enhancing their subject content knowledge, and are a great opportunity to network with other teachers who are learning the same topics. These courses also provide activities that can be adapted to be used directly in the classroom. Teachers are able to gain “the National Centre of Computing Education certificate in GCSE Computer Science subject knowledge", which means you will be automatically entitled to free CPD from the NCCE and you may even be eligible to apply for a training bursary to support you while you learn.
