About the Event

Programming and algorithms are fundamental to the primary computing curriculum. Algorithms are clear and repeatable instructions to solve problems that can often be expressed in a programming language for a computer to follow. Using their knowledge of algorithms and programming, children can harness the power of computers to extend their capabilities and change the world. During this CPD, you will discover engaging and effective ways to help children use computational thinking. You’ll help them develop their knowledge of how technology works, and the skills to make computers follow instructions through simple programs. A range of approaches will be explored, including ‘unplugged’ activities that require no computer. You’ll also gain confidence in leading programming and multimedia activities that allow creativity and promote widespread engagement. The professional development will highlight the differences and commonalities across Key Stages 1 and 2, helping all primary teachers to plan for age-appropriate learning while developing an understanding of progression through computing.

Book now and you will be automatically registered for the scheduled sessions for the course. Remote CPD courses have live, facilitator-led sessions and are not available for instant access. Please refer to the schedule of dates published for each course instance.
