Event Details


Join us at Edge Hill University and choose from our FREE Computing Workshops to learn new skills and explore the Computing curriculum. Each workshop is led by an expert practising teacher and you'll learn practical skills, computational thinking and explore the implications for your own classrooms. 

There'll be several workshops running these are yet to be confirmed,topics covered in the past include:

  • Creative Computing: Sonic Pi (KS2/3)
  • Creative Computing: Unplugged Computing / Barefoot (KS1-2)
  • Creative Computing: Programming Minecraft using the Raspberry Pi (KS2/3)
  • Creative Computing: Python (KS3/4)
  • Creative Computing: SQL - GCSE preparation (KS4)
  • Creative Computing: Little Man Computing for GCSE (KS4)
  • Creative Computing: Introduction to App Inventor for KS2/3
  • Creative Computing: Logic Gates (KS3/4)
  • Physical Computing: CodeBug: the cute, programmable and wearable device designed to introduce simple programming and electronic concepts to anyone, at any age. (KS1-4)
  • Physical Computing: 3D Printing in the classroom (KS1-4)
  • Physical Computing: Getting started with the BBC Microbit (KS3)
  • Physical Computing: Code a Drone
  • Physical Computing: Spheros
  • Primary and Secondary teachers are more than welcome to join us to improve their own computing skills.

You can see details of all 3 of our events in 2020 here.

And if you would like to run an additional session at this event please get in touch.

Whilst you are here.... National Centre for Computing Education - Edge Hill Regional Delivery Partner
We are helping to kickstart the NCCE by running primary and secondary computing CPD days which also attract a bursary to help your school pay for cover costs for example.

Please do make the most of this brilliant opportunity - it won't be around for ever and the North West has such potential to be a beacon for Computing nationally!

There are LOTS of courses in April, May, June, July. Links:-

Here's a selection of feedback from our previous events:
I learned an awful lot from Ahmad and found his delivery to be exceptional.
Enjoyed very much. I learnt new ways to look at teaching including hack jams, flipped learning, scoreboards and parental engagement. I also took home lots of links to useful resources.
Learnt how to tackle networking at an accessible level and got plenty of skills of how to adapt teaching strategies and flipped learning for pupils to access the skills they need
Great fun! Wide range of ideas and ready to us lesson resources.
Great! Plenty of time to tinker plus time to share ideas in a wider range of areas.
Brilliant opportunity to explore creating and coding using Lego WeDo. Easy to code using Scratch and lots of freedom to explore. Thanks
This was a fantastic workshop, allowing for lots of hands-on experience. Addressing the coding around a child designed circuit and thr cross curricular opportunities for maths with angles etc was really helpful. Jo was engaging and made the workshop fun.
The use of a character within the Sphero challenges which brought in maker opportunities is an element I really liked and we got to meet Chickenator !
This was a great introduction to Python Programming. I loved the idea of showing 'bugged' code and encouraging syntax errors.  I made plenty of these. The workshop was really useful for my professional development. I especially liked the idea of bugging another persons work, using a specific criteria.
The best morning course I have been on in years. Full of practical ideas.
I have attended  a few micro:bit training sessions over the years but this one stood out.  Ben structured the session to show the progression of how to introduce Micro:Bits, naming it’s parts and showing simple images right through to lessons that involved conditionals and variables. The pace was excellent and there were so many instant lesson ideas and ways to link computing to other areas of the curriculum.  By the end of the session I had so many ideas and am really looking forward to using them for my Year 5 and 6 classes. The children will love them. Thank you. 
Lots of useful websites, loved the rubber ducks and other ideas to make lessons more interesting. 
As always another fabulous workshop, held by an enthusiastic & inspiring computing lead.
A fabulous, inspring course. Perfect for beginners
Nicola delivered a wealth of valuable information and tips that I found very useful.
