Clever Stuff for Common Problems - Going Beyond Simple Algorithms

Stuart Davison (CAS Regional Centre coordinator, Birmingham City University)

This is an introduction to the CAS Tenderfoot resources that Master Teachers will be using in upcoming training courses over the next year.

The focus of this session will be to identify how teachers can develop pupils’ Computational Thinking skills by applying them to common problems. The focus is not on teaching a process to follow but understanding how to use these techniques to explore solutions to problems so that they can be used again for other similar scenarios.

This approach encourages an independent set of strategies to problem solving that pupils can take with them through into GCSE and A-level.

You will take away ideas for simple activities you can use in the classroom tomorrow that don’t need any specialist software including: • Using the array data structure • Summarising relationships with graphs • Sorting with binary trees

These activities focus on developing understanding in an unplugged way and provide an excellent starting point for developing Computational Thinking skills.

5:15 pm - 5.45 pm

Assessing computational thinking: methods for assessment in the new 9-1 framework

Simon Brown, lead teacher for ICT & Computing, Tudor Grange Academy Solihull

In this session, delegates will look at methods for assessing student progress in computational thinking with specific reference to the 9-1 framework and the relevant examined component. We will look at the correct - consolidate - challenge methodology we have developed at Solihull. Delegates will be able to take away with them resources which have been tried and tested in the classroom.

A Q&A session will follow.
