Information about Barefoot Computing:
The purpose of the Barefoot Computing project is to help primary school teachers ready themselves for the new computing curriculum. The project is funded by the DfE and will develop computer science exemplification resources for primary schoolteachers. These exemplifications will illustrate how progression can be enhanced across other subjects in the curriculum (such as literacy, maths and science for example) by teaching computer science. They will also equip teachers with the basic computer science subject knowledge and confidence needed to begin the journey towards becoming excellent computing teachers.
Primary schools will be introduced to the new resources through a country wide series of 800 Barefoot Computing workshops run by volunteer experts, which will be run over twelve months starting in the summer of 2014.
The project will also establish new Barefoot Computing practitioner communities for teachers within and supported by the CAS Network of Teaching Excellence in Computer Science. These will be local grassroots communities where teachers can share ideas on what works in the classroom, engage with the wider computing community and develop and spread good teaching practice.
