GCSE Computer Science Theory Day 1 of 3
Details of the event:
The first of three 1-day GCSE Computer Science theory sessions, one day each term during the 2016-2017 academic year.
Attending all 3 will cover the majority of the theory required to teach the new GCSE Computer Science (9-1) – it is not exam board specific.
Each day will involve five, 1-hour sessions on a specific topic area. Delivered by Master Teachers who are experience in teaching the material, each session will teach you the theory that you need to know, allow you to ask any questions, and consider how you will teach the theory. The primary goal of each session is to give you the knowledge, understanding and confidence to deliver the new courses.
Aims of the event:
Some programming concepts will be covered, but this is not a ‘learn to program’ training session.
You can attend one day, all three or just a morning or afternoon – whichever is most appropriate for you.

9:00-9:15 - Refreshments
9:15-10:15 – Systems architecture (CPU, Von Neumann, FE cycle, Embedded systems)
10:30-11:30 – Memory and storage (RAM, ROM, VM, Flash memory, Types and characteristics of storage media)
11:45-12:45 – Data representation, numbers (binary, hexadecimal, addition, shifts)
12:45-1:15 – lunch
1:15–2:15 – Data representation, character sets and compression
2:30-3:30 – Programming theory (1D & 2D arrays, SQL, records, subroutines and parameters)
