KS3 Teacher CPD at King's College London

https://www1.kcl.ac.uk/prospectus/shortcourses/details/name/teachks3computing2018/alpha//month//day//header_search/computer Funded by the DfE as part of the Computing At School's Network of Excellence Regional Centre Programme, this VERY low cost 8 week twilight course. The course is aimed at KS3 teachers who are new to teaching Computing, who are perhaps converting from teaching ICT or other subjects. No previous programming experience is needed. The course will focus on the computer science elements of the Computing curriculum. Each session will consist of an hour of theory and an hour of programming hour to develop an understanding of both how the computer works and some simple text-based programming. Week 1 Algorithms - followed by Python: Turtle Graphics Week 2 Binary numbers -- Python: Turtles & Functions Week 3 More on binary numbers -- Python: If statements Week 4 Boolean logic -- Python: Loops Week 5 Representing sound and images -- Problem solving in Scratch and Python Week 6 Structure of a computer-- Problem-solving in Scratch and Python Week 7 More about the computer -- Problem-solving in Scratch and Python Week 8 Python Easy Gui and Consolidation Each week teachers are required to undertake a homework task. A certificate of completion and achievement will be given at the end of the course.
