This half day course is suitable for:
Primary Computing/ICT subject leaders; specialist ICT teachers
Programming in all its versions will be an essential component of all schemes of work which follow the Programme of Study. This half day course will introduce the key concepts and a range of programming environments, and consider planning for progression and assessment, thus providing a framework for delegates to go on and develop a full programming curriculum.
The course will focus on writing programs to solve problems, for yourself and other users. We will:
- Analyse problems and state solutions in natural language
- Understand and use the big ideas in algorithmic thinking
- Translate a possible solution into a particular programming environment
- Test and check. A small number of different programming environments will be used, to work through as many examples as time allows. The examples will be appropriate to a wide range of ages and abilities in the primary setting, and exemplify progression and assessment. Many other possible programming environments on different platforms will also be referenced to allow delegates to put together a programming curriculum for their particular hardware and software.
