- Want an opportunity to share your enthusiasm for Computing with like minded educators?
- Like to hear about new tools, technologies and approaches you might use with your own pupils?
Then join us, for a unique opportunity to hear from practising teachers and educators about new ideas to really bring Computing to life.
Format of THE DAY
This year the conference is organised into
- morning keynotes based around Computing Science in CfE from Education Scotland
- afternoon keynotes on the impact of Computing from the Police Scotland's Cybersecurity division and Toshiba Medical Imaging.
- a Senior phase track with seminars focused around teaching Higher Computing Science
- a Broad General Education track on teaching Computing to Primary and lower Secondary pupils with seminars in the morning and practical hands-on activities in the afternoon.
- an optional Arduino workshop in the afternoon.
- a drop-in area where you can try out the extra-curricular opportunities that Coder Dojo, Lambda Jam and Code Club can provide.
Registration and breakfast will be from 8.30am till 9.30am
The event will close at 5pm when we hope you will stay for a CAS Scotland general meeting (as well as drinks and nibbles!)
What DOES IT COST?
The full ticket cost this year £15 due to the more streamlined format for this years conference and the generous donation of space by the School of Computing at Edinburgh Napier University. This bargain price still includes a light breakfast, teas and coffees, lunch and some goodies.
