Session 3 (PM1) – 13:35 – 14:35
H1 – Primary: ScratchMaths (Y6 resources) with Pier Saunders (UCL)
H2 – Primary: Cubetto, KS1 & Early Years with Helen Cheung & Eleni Vasileiadou
H5 – NEA project assessing / standardisation with Garfield Gordon
H6 – Secondary: OCR exam board with Vinay Thawait
H7 – Drones, RAF 100, Engineering with the Movies with Royal Acad Eng: Scott Atkinson & Ivan Gutowski-Smith (KS3/2)
This session will explore how drones work and how they can be used for civilian, humanitarian and commercial purposes. This resource is designed as an introduction to the uses of drones, aimed at dispelling the myth that they are just weapons or toys. In fact they have wider ranging practical civil, humanitarian and commercial applications. We will also explore how drones can be reverse engineered, exploring ways in which enquiring minds can build their own functioning quadcopter. All the resources are also available on our website at: https://www.raeng.org.uk/education/schools/teaching-and-learning-resources/curriculum-resources including Engineering in the Movies and RAF100 ‘Aiming for Awesome’ which will be demonstrated during this session.
IT1 – Secondary: KS4 – Teaching data representation (manipulating images / sound in Python) with Alex Hadwen-Bennett
In this session we will look at ways of teaching image and sound representation to GCSE students through practical programming activities using Python. You will be provided with resources you can use in the classroom straight away without the need to install additional Python modules.
IT2 – Secondary: KS3/4 – PRIMM, Pedagogy for Programming w Sue Sentance
IT3 – Primary/Secondary: KS1 to KS4 – Networks with Duncan Maidens
IT6 – Secondary: A level – C# with Martin Richards
Hands on C# programming session based around real AS and A level teaching examples and past exam content.
Inspiring and supervising students for the A level project using C# with Windows. Open discussion of the pros and cons of a C#-based approach at A-level.
IT7 – Secondary: KS4/5 Data Analysis w Jupyter Notebooks – Michel Wermelinger and Clifford French
Michel Wermelinger will demonstrate how to use Python in Jupyter Notebooks, running in a browser, to analyse data on world diseases. Jupyter notebooks provide an intuitive, easy to use environment that integrates explanations, exercises and the output of the code so that students program incrementally and get immediate feedback. Teachers will be able to use what they learn both in computer science lessons and in Science or Geography at KS4 (or higher) with no need to install software.
