Help for organising CAS Local community meetings

Out of the box CAS Local community meetings

We have provided here a number of ‘out of the box’ sessions for both primary and secondary CAS Local community meetings that you can download and use if you don’t have the time to create something from scratch! These are drawn from other CAS Local Leader suggestions and also the CAS Quickstart Computing packs.

If you would like to add your own ideas here please do.

Other information

What is a CAS Local community?

The CAS Local community is a local, face-to-face meeting of Primary and/or Secondary school teachers, to share their ideas for developing the teaching of Computing in their schools, their classrooms and their community. It is a meeting of like-minded professionals with the general objective of supporting each other and the specific aim of providing (at least) one resource for attendees to take away use in the classroom.

CAS Local communities meet once a term for a couple of hours after school. The style and format of the meeting is up to the discretion of the CAS Local Leader, but each will focus on an aspect of teaching the Computing curriculum and will provide plenty of opportunity for teachers to collaborate, sharing their expertise with one another.

How can I become a CAS Local Leader?

The CAS Central Team will then set up your CAS Local Community webpage, adding you as an administrator to the CAS Community website and creating a dedicated CAS Local Leader email ID for your CAS Local group
