We would like to invite you to the first CAS London Meeting. This is a regional collaboration bringing together primary and secondary teachers, Computing At School master teachers, hub leaders, lead schools, universities, boroughs and other training groups and interested parties to promote and support computing education in London. The meeting aims to start a discussion of how we can best mutually support each other, further developing our London education computing community.
The twilight event is on Friday 10th July 2015, at King’s College London.
- 4:30 Networking tasks & refreshments
- 5:30 Keynote speaker Simon Humphreys
- 5:45 Contributed presentations: What’s happening in London?
- 6:30 Working together: Tasks
- 7:00 Finish – more refreshments and networking
We aim to explore three questions about computing CPD and teaching computing in London schools: What is working well? What help do you need? What can you offer others?
If possible, can you create 1 or 2 slides with your answers to the above questions and send them to us. We will share your slides on a rolling display during the networking sessions and ask a number of contributors to talk through their slides in the contributed presentations session (maximum of 4 minutes per presentation).
Join us to celebrate the work done by our fantastic community of computing educators (that’s you) and to find out how we can further grow and develop the network of support and computing CPD provision across London.
