Event description

Description

Designed to support the teaching of Computing in Primary Schools, by offering the teachers opportunities to observe alternative ideas, approaches and strategies as well as providing them with free planning materials and resources.

Aim: This event will support teachers with the development of Computing in their schools and is intended for primary school Computing teachers, leaders and co-ordinators, but other interested individuals are very welcome to attend and are likely to find it beneficial.

What to expect: Following a welcome and introduction, you'll have an opportunity to take part in a CAS Barefoot Computing lesson. Computing Master Teacher Alan O'Donohoe has been invited in to provide practical ideas for teaching Computing using the award winning Barefoot resources. This will provide an opportunity to support your own professional development as well as that of your colleagues. Expect plenty of practical ideas, helpful suggestions and transferable strategies before trying them with your own pupils.
