Description

Prepare pupils for programming tasks (incl. NEAs for GCSE Computer Science)

Link to this page: http://exa.is/8mar16.twilight

Host: Alan O'Donohoe, exa.foundation

PROGRAMME

  • 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?
  • What strategies

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.

Some students really struggle to make rapid progress with the programming aspects of Computing, especially text-based programming. This event is intended to support teachers with the teaching of pupils who find problem solving, and text-based programming difficult as well as differentiation teaching to support a wide ability range.

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

16:00 Welcome. Tea & Coffee. Group Discussion Activities.

16:30 Classroom Based Activity:

  • Identifying the challenges of text-based programming
  • Modelling strategies to support less confident learners
  • Developing students confidence with problem solving
  • Using a text-based programming language to develop a solution
  • Sharing solutions to benefit all learners

18:00 Close
