Description

#exabits, GCSE Computer Science: Programming & NEAs 15Sep17

Link: http://exa.foundation/events

Host: Alan O'Donohoe, exa.foundation

OBJECTIVES:

  • How are you preparing your GCSE Computer Science students for the Non-Examined Assessment part of their course?
  • How can you effectively teach children to problem solve, algorithm design and text-based programming?
  • How do you differentiate your teaching so that your students can make rapid learning progress?
  • Discover the potential of strategies to support all learners including Pair Programming

Aims: This event will support teachers with the development of GCSE Computer Science in their schools. It will provide teachers with an impactful practical experience demonstrating a range of teaching & learning strategies they can use in their own Computing lessons in KS3/KS4, but particularly useful for teaching GCSE Computer Science.

We will focus on Teaching & Learning strategies that include paired programming, problem-solving, algorithm design, Python, code-sharing, debugging and differentiation strategies.

Equipment will be provided, but you may wish to bring your own laptop.

The late start is to allow for travel in the morning. Delegates will need to make their own arrangements for lunch as lunch is not included.
