Computer Science and the Knowledge-Based Curriculum
Thursday Nov 30, 2017 from 4:15PM to 6:15PM
Hosted by CAS East of England
David Kinnen is a CAS Master Teacher, working for the Inspiration Trust, developing a knowledge-based curriculum for computer science and IT. David will explain the rationale behind the knowledge-based curriculum, and explain how to ensure mastery through the use of multiple-choice questions (MCQs) and knowledge tests. David will also explore the evidence that shows that well-written MCQs are a powerful for checking a student's understanding, and supports targetted teaching and intervention around knowledge.
The aim is for everyone to leave having designed some multiple choice questions or a knowledge test for an element of their curriculum. This course is suitable for Key Stage 2, Key Stage 3 and GCSE teachers.
