Aim: To support teachers with the development of Computing in their schools. This event is intended for secondary school Computing teachers, but other interested individuals are very welcome to attend and are likely to find it beneficial.
What to expect: Following a brief introduction, in our Resource Roundup, you'll have an opportunity to discover great resources and strategies first-hand from the teachers actually using them. Then you'll take part in a highly engaging (and entertaining), live hands-on Computing lesson that is intended to support your own professional development as well as that of your colleagues. Expect plenty of practical ideas, helpful suggestions and transferable strategies you can be using with your students the very next day.
9:30 Resource Roundup: "Bring & Brag"
Please bring a resource along with you to brag about to other teachers e.g. a teaching or learning resource you have discovered, something you've been marking or working on, or student work.
It doesn't need to be anything particularly outstanding, amazing or super-special, in fact - something you might already have with you could work really well, for example, a piece of student work that you're unhappy with would be ideal.
