Teaching networks and the internet for A-Level Computer ScienceĀ 

Friday Jan 13, 2017 from 9:00AM to 4:00PM

Hosted by CAS Yorkshire and the Humber (University of York)

From the protocols that make networks tick, through to the security measures that keep them safe, teachers will be provided with lots of classroom ideas. Throughout the day participants will piece together the theoretical and technical aspects of computer networks and the applications that run across them. Wired and wireless networks, encryption and a host of security considerations will be covered, aligned to the most recent awarding body specifications.

This course is offered by the National STEM Learning Centre working with CAS Master Teachers and the Regional Centre for Yorkshire and Humber. With the generous support of the Enthuse Charitable Trust, a bursary is available to teachers in state schools equal to the course fee

Outcomes - You will:
  • be able to teach how the suite of protocols enables networked computing
  • develop an in-depth understanding of the TCP/IP stack
  • take away a range of approaches to teaching network fundamentals and the client-server model of application design
  • teach wireless networking and security in engaging ways
  • gain knowledge of modern internet security measures, a growing topic in examinations
