Computing Design/Algorithm pro-formas (PDF and editable Word docx)

Computing Design/Algorithm pro-formas (PDF and editable Word docx)

As described in my “Delve in, for twelve min!” video CPD, these are example pro-formas to give pupils to design their computing projects. These could be Scratch projects; animations, games, quizzes etc. The design process, which is largely missed in computing, forms an essential part of a coding project, and also provides many benefits in terms of AFL. Please use in conjunction with the training video, and also check out the entire “Delve in, for twelve min!” series: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL3kA-gpaSB2a6Vfdq04rGt5xcKQg8FG8x

Computational Thinking and the Digital Competence Framework

Computational Thinking and the Digital Competence Framework

My latest poster shows how the understanding of Computational Thinking underpins all concepts of the Digital Competence Framework (DCF). I have given examples of how each concept can be applied to primary strands of the framework. Feel free to download and use as part of CPD sessions! ***Please leave a review!***

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
