Develop pupils’ problem solving skills in computing and other subjects

March 6, 2017 at 4:00PM

St Mark's Church of England Primary School

This course will provide teachers with the opportunity to explore problem solving across all 6 strands of the computing curriculum, as well as in other subjects. We will explore how abstraction, algorithmic thinking, decomposition, evaluation and generalisation can all be used to help pupils solve problems. The skills developed can be applied in many different subjects, helping pupils to reinforce their understanding of the world around them.
