Hack the Curriculum

18 April 2015 9:30 - 16:00


The CAS #include Hack the Curriculum is an opportunity for teachers, professionals and academics to collaborate and share expertise. This is no ordinary hack though! This year our aim is to bring together the teaching expertise of classroom teachers with the knowledge and experience of industry professionals and academics to create a Key Stage 3 Computing Wikibook for students aged 11-13. The contents of the book will be up to you within the outline of the Government's programme of study - perhaps you have a great idea for teaching a particular concept, so could you write an article, draw a diagram or create a video to explain it? (Have a look at the Key Stage 3 programme of study to get some ideas). The Wikibook will be available after the event for free to all schools in the country - we think CS should be for all.

Please bring your own laptop or tablet so that you can participate.


I'm a teacher, why would I want to come to this event?

  • Free Resources - Who doesn't love free stuff that saves them time and effort?
  • CPD - Meet up with people from industry, ask them about all the things you always wanted to know and maybe make some very useful friends and contacts.
  • Swag - We have cool swag to give away, including prizes for the best Wikibook contributions. We'll also throw in a tasty lunch and snacks while you hack!
  • New software - Did you know there is a lot of cool and completely free software out there that you probably haven't used? Maybe you'll have a close encounter with a Raspberry Pi? Come and have a go with it and take back what you know to your classroom...and maybe you might be taking back a Pi too if you're a winner!
  • Helping other people - The Wikibook we all make will be made available online for free for Computing teachers everywhere to use. 


I'm an industry professional or an academic, why would I want to come to this event?

  • Shaping education - Come and make a difference to potentially thousands of childrens' education by collaborating with their teachers to produce a resource for all
  • Meet people - Meet up with other professionals, academics and teachers with common goals of making Computer Science inclusive for all
  • Free lunch - No explanation needed!
