Denbigh TSA: Primary Computing Network (March)
Tuesday, 3 March 2015 from 16:00 to 17:30 (GMT)
Denbigh TSA organising a Computing Networking group across Milton Keynes and surrounding areas!
With the introduction of the Computing curriculum, many primary schools, in particular, have faced challenges in the transition from ICT to Computing. This networking group is hoping to bring together a collection of teachers from the local area to share on their Computing journey and help support each other through the transition.
