Computing - Using critical thinking to develop cross curricular skills
Tuesday Jan 24, 2017 from 4:30PM to 5:30PM
Hosted by CAS Northern Ireland
In this session we will look at how modern technology including coding, robots and drones can be used to develop a range of cross curricular skills focusing on developing numeracy with aspects of other skills such as working with others, critical thinking and being creative. In this session participants will be asked to interact with some of the challenges that are used within Critical Thinking classes and will be challenged to think of ways that this could be used in different settings.
CAS Northern Ireland
Stranmillis University College was established in 1922 ‘to provide teacher training for Northern Ireland’. While this remains its core mission it now recognises the need for a multi-professional approach to deal with the complex world in which we now operate. Over the years the College has expanded its undergraduate portfolio to offer a wider range of professionally related academic programmes - the BA in Early Childhood Studies and BSc in Health, Physical Activity and Sport. These professional degree programmes complement and support core elements of the BEd programme and the PGCE in Early Years Education. The University College continues to prioritise the ongoing development of teachers and other professionals by offering a range of postgraduate opportunities through its Master’s programmes - the MEd, MTeach and MA(Early Childhood Studies). The College’s mission now extends beyond Northern Ireland. The University College works with an extensive range of partners in Europe, America, Africa, China and Malaysia.
