Code Breaking the DCF
Progression in Computing and Coding
Using iPad to Meet the Digital Competence Framework
Summary of the day
Computers are now part of everyday life. For all of us of us, technology is central and essential to our lives, at home and at work. We are confident consumers, but perhaps not as confident teaching the skills associated with computational thinking and programming to our students. Pupils who can think computationally are better able to conceptualise, understand and use technology, and so are better prepared for today’s world and the future.
This one day course will allow participants to experience the progression of what computational thinking, computing, coding and programming looks like in the Primary classroom. Participants will develop confidence in using the language of computing, understanding problems, programming devices and developing their own activities which will empower pupils in their own class across all areas of the curriculum. All activities will link back to the Digital Competence Framework.
By attending this one day course teachers will feel confident, excited and ready to reinvigorate their teaching and learning in this important area of the curriculum.
The day will also include the opportunity to hear from other schools using technology to facilitate learning, networking and have the chance to win an Apple TV in our end of day draw!
This event is being delivered in association with iTeach - the UK’s leading education technology training company who inspire over 27,000 teachers annually. So come and learn how to ensure the technology you use makes a real and meaningful impact on your students learning.
