From unplugged to plugged & beyond
Wednesday Mar 21, 2018 from 10:00AM to 3:00PM
Hosted by CAS North West - Manchester (University of Manchester)
A day of free Computing CPD - 21st March..
|What will the day involve?|
|Session 1: Unplugged Barefoot Computing will explore the DfE Barefoot resources. These resources are funded by BT and are free for all schools. They will illustrate how unplugged computing (computing without technology) is the ideal way to develop pupils’ computational thinking skills in primary schools.|
|Session 2: Plugged Code Club’s Liz Smart will build on Jon’s unplugged session illustrating the link between computational thinking and coding. Liz’s session will involve getting teachers hands-on as they code in Scratch. Liz’s session will provide ideas teachers can take away and immediately use with their pupils|
|Session 3: Beyond CAS Manchester’s Regional Coordinators, Sarah and Carol’s session will close the day by exploring a range of physical computing devices which can be used across the primary phase. Teachers will get hands-on with a range of computing kit available to loan for free from their local CAS Master Teacher.|

Master Teachers are playing an important role in training teachers through CPD opportunities and acting as a focus for developing computing in schools. Part of the role of the CRC is to support Master Teachers in these activities, but also to work alongside Master Teachers to provide a co-ordinated network of support for schools.
