NCCE Primary programming and algorithms
Discover engaging and effective ways to help children use computational thinking in this 1 day course.
This course is delivered as part of the National Centre for Computing Education.
Programming and algorithms are fundamental to the primary computing curriculum. Algorithms are clear and unambiguous instructions to solve problems which can often be translated using a programming language for a computer to follow. By thinking computationally, children can harness the power of computers to extend their capabilities.
During this one-day professional development, you will discover engaging and effective ways to help children use computational thinking. You will be equipped to develop their knowledge of how technology works, and the skills to make computers follow instructions in simple programs. A range of approaches will be explored, including ‘unplugged’ activities that require no computer, and multimedia activities that allow creativity and promote widespread engagement.
Price: £35 per delegate or FREE*
