Research based methods for teaching programming - Phil Bagge

Join Phil Bagge, Hampshire Computing Inspector/advisor as he shares about computing and educational research that all teachers should know when teaching pupils to programme. Consider which methods are more appropriate to a novice and which are more appropriate to a pupil with a greater portfolio of programming concepts. What research do we have that will help us sequence programming concepts to reduce cognitive load and move more successfully from concrete to abstract. With Ofsted placing more value on research based curriculum across all subjects this session will help you evaluate your programming curriculum and how research based it is.

Outstanding cross curricular IT - Phil Bagge

Many schools want pupils to leave with a high level of IT skills and knowledge so they can make the most of their next stage of learning. Join Phil Bagge, Hampshire Computing Inspector / advisor to explore how we can develop cross curricular IT skills and imbed these in meaningful projects that support and enhance the rest of the curriculum. 

What challenges will we face? 

Should we only teach application skills and knowledge or is there more?

Can research help?

Creating a Video Based Computing Curriculum - Jonathan Martin

Many schools will look to help staff who are not confident in delivering the Computing Curriculum for KS2/3. By mapping the free tools provided by Google’s Applied Digital Skills Curriuclum and CS First to their Long Term Planning, schools can be confident the curriculum is taught well, has full coverage and provides both challenge and support to ensure all children are making progress.

These tools are FREE for all schools – this workshop will show you how to get set up, how to use them to teach, and how to track pupil progress.
