How do you teach coding?

How do you teach coding?

How do you teach coding? Who is this for? For primary teachers who teach programming - for both non-specialist and specialist computing teachers. What is it? This is a 15-minute research questionnaire by researchers at Queen Mary University of London. Why might you do this? Just doing the questionnaire, will help you think about your own planning and how you teach coding. If you are interested in taking part in the research to improve how we teach programming, pop your email at the end of the survey. Please help us find out more about how we teach programming so we can improve what how we teach our primary pupils how to code! Here is the research questionnaire. https://goo.gl/forms/4nWlR1kQ2r8mnFud2

Computational Thinking & DCF

Computational Thinking & DCF

A set of informative posters to support the delivery of the Digital Competence Framework! With particular relevance to the Digital Competence Framework within Wales, this resource was created as a guide to educators at all levels on how to incorporate Computational Thinking into lessons. This resource also provides suggestions on how the terminology can be simplified and delivered at different levels of education. There are a broad range of practical ideas on how to integrate computational thinking questions, tasks and games into subjects across the curriculum. I hope you find it of use! **Please Leave a Review!!!**

KS2 - Computing Starter Pack!

Great bundle price! Individually they should be £11! So you save 45%!!! New to the subject or just want some new ideas? Sometimes Computing can be a scary subject to teach when you don't know where to start! I've bundled together a few of my personal favourite units to teach, and knocked off a good discount! Enjoy! @AlwaysComputing
