How to teach networking and other resources from Cisco

Wednesday Sep 19, 2018 from 4:00PM to 4:45PM


Dear colleague, We hope you are easing back into school, ready for another year. I am excited to invite you to our first Computing for Schools (C4S) live webinar, which will be held on the 19th September 4.00-4.45pm (UK time).

With over 100 schools now signed up as 'School Cisco Academies' we are gearing up to support the existing, as well as recruiting new schools, to this exciting program. This is the first in a series of webinars designed to help teachers become aware of the rich set of Computing resources available for their pupils as well as CPD.

We will be covering a number of relevant topics, everything from registering for the courses, enrolling students and accessing the brilliant Packet Tracer tool. Joining myself on the call will be Duncan Maidens and Keith Buncle from Birmingham City University, and Andrew Smith from The Open University. We will also have Helen Clothier from Cisco and our Technical Manager Semyon Ovsyannikov.

The agenda for our first call will include:

  • Time      Topic
  • 4.00 - 4.05 Introductions
  • 4.05 - 4.15 High Level Introduction to NetAcad and C4S
  • 4.15 - 4.20 Guide to using the CAS Academy Support Centre (ASC)

Birmingham City University

Birmingham City University fully supports the promotion and teaching of Computer Science (CS) in Schools. We recognise the need for these skills, not only in our future undergraduates, but across all disciplines and at all levels. Today’s children will be working in a world of technology that will be invented by tomorrow's Computer Scientists. We have a team of educational professionals with a wealth of experience in delivering support to Schools and Colleges for Computing and Computer Science. This experience has given us a great deal of insight and knowledge in how to provide education, support teachers and promote academic programs. Teachers need sound subject knowledge, good practical skills in delivering and managing hands on activities, a set of resources that they can pick up and use, and last but certainly not least, a support network they can rely on to offer help and advice as needed. Birmingham City University has engaged in: training CS Master Teachers (MT); run a CAS hub; won a DfE funded project to develop and deliver CS resources; delivered CPD sessions; run school enrichment activities and; hosted STEM and CS events at the University.
