Teach Computing KS3/4 (Differentiation)
Aims: This event is to support teachers with the development of Computing & Computer Science in their schools. It will enable teachers to support their own professional development, provide access to free resources and activities as well as presenting opportunities for teachers to network with other teachers from their local area.
Some children 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 programming difficult as well as differentiation teaching to support a wide ability range.
