Computing Subject Leaders – Autumn Update

CurriculumLogoA great way to start to the new academic year – with a computing leads update.

A busy day was planned: having  rolled out our new Office365 email we heard from Ian Mills about the other features that schools could start to think about using. We spent time sharing good practice across each others schools and had time to look at resources to support computing.

We heard an inspirational talk from Devonshire Road school about their blogging success and the importance of giving the children a real purpose to write for -thank you.

In the afternoon we heard from Mark Capaldi the head of computing at Sharples Secondary as to what their expectation would be from our year6s.

Then the fun began: Collaborative learning using office365 online apps; games based learning and Lego WeDo & Mindstorm .

If you attended this session would be great to hear your feed back .

    Thanks, as ever, for a great day. Really useful ideas – even though some are a way off in many of our schools, it’s great to be informed ready for the future.

    It was great to see and have a go at some new resources before trying out in class. Some really useful info and updates.

    A great day. Love Office 365 and can’t wait to get going with collaborative learning in school (although I know this may be a while off).
