On Friday 20 February we have a double workshop session for computing teachers in London*. These demonstrate ways of introducing programming and computational thinking topics to the classroom in a fun way, without the need to use computers. You are welcome to attend either or both sessions, which are FREE. These will be held at Queen Mary University of London (Mile End Campus).
• Friday 20 February 2015, 2.00-3.30pm – Programming unplugged: learning programming without computers (click to see more information)
for the first workshop ‘Programming unplugged: learning programming with computers’ at 2pm on 20 February.
• Friday 20 February 2015, 4.00-5.30pm – Computational thinking: it’s about people too (click to see more information)
for the second workshop ‘Computational thinking: it’s about people too’ at 4pm on 20 February.
Sign-up to hear about our workshops as they are advertised.
*Do I have to be a London computing teacher to attend?
The workshops are aimed at those who are currently (or who are about to begin) teaching the Computing curricula (particularly GCSE and A-level, though the information in the workshops has been used with younger children). As we’re funded by the Mayor of London we prioritise those who are currently teaching in London schools. The workshops are not suitable for school pupils though as the events are about how to introduce computing concepts into the classroom. Contact Jo Brodie (firstname.lastname@example.org) for further information.
