Thanks to the generosity of our friends at Google, CAS is pleased to announce the (re)launch of its YouTube channel, CAS TV.

We’ve some exciting programmes lined up for the channel, with new content being released each week for the next few months, and hopefully beyond. We’re starting with Simon Peyton Jones explaining algorithmic complexity (and giving his view on P vs NP), then following with Pete Kemp on developing computational thinking through 3D animation, Alan O’Donohoe on teaching Python and Catherine Elliott of #include on helping students with SEN/D access the computing curriculum.

There is much more planned for the weeks ahead, taking in some of the real subject knowledge challenges of secondary computing to link with CAS’s Tenderfoot Computing project, practical classroom strategies for teaching programming, physical computing and other elements of CS and some broader educational issues such as lesson observation, extracurricular projects and primary-secondary links. We’ll also be adding to the archive of CAS conference presentations - do let us know if you’d like us to come and film at an event you’re organising.

To keep up to date with all this content, simply click the subscribe button on

As well as subscribing, there are some other ways you could get involved:

  • Tweet out links to new programmes - follow @compatsch for updates.
  • We’re on the lookout for content and programme ideas: if you’d like us to come and film an interview about an interesting project, or (assuming you can secure the necessary permissions) film in your school, please do get in touch directly or below.
  • We’re also happy to add CAS members’ own YouTube content to the CAS TV home page - ping us a note or reply below if you’d like us to include something from your channel (and perhaps return the favour…). We’re keen to capture something of the CAS community spirit on the new channel: “There is no them - only us”.

Don’t forget - please subscribe!
