Teach KS3 Computing 2018


Monday Jan 22, 2018 5:30PM until Monday Mar 19, 2018 7:30PM


Hosted by CAS London (Kings College London and Queen Mary University of London)

This 8-week twilight course will be useful to you if you have just started teaching Computing at KS3, whether you are a specialist or non-specialist teacher.

Book here: https://www1.kcl.ac.uk/prospectus/shortcourses/index/name/teachks3computing2018

The course, taught by John Feleppa, will focus on the computer science elements of the Computing curriculum. Each session will consist of an hour of theory and an hour of programming hour to develop an understanding of both how the computer works and some simple text-based programming.

This 8-week twilight course will be useful to you if you have just started teaching Computing at KS3, whether you are a specialist or non-specialist teacher. We aim to cover the following aspects of the Computing KS3 curriculum:

  • Algorithms that reflect computational thinking
  • Learning to use a programming language (in this case Python) to solve problems.
  • Boolean logic and binary numbers
  • Hardware and software components that make up computer systems, and how the computer stores and executes instructions
As well as covering core subject knowledge, the aim in this course is also to give teachers a range of effective strategies to teach programming to beginners.

  • Week 1 Algorithms - followed by Python: Turtle Graphics
  • Week 2 Binary numbers -- Python: Turtles & Functions
  • Week 3 More on binary numbers -- Python: If statements
  • Week 4 Boolean logic -- Python: Loops
  • Week 5 Representing sound and images -- Problem solving in Scratch and Python
  • Week 6 Structure of a computer-- Problem-solving in Scratch and Python
  • Week 7 More about the computer -- Problem-solving in Scratch and Python
  • Week 8 Python Easy Gui and Consolidation

Each week teachers are required to undertake a homework task. A certificate of completion and achievement will be given at the end of the course.
