A-level Computer Science: Functional Programming
Suitable for: All teachers who are new to teaching AQA A-level Computer Science and those teachers who are familiar with the old specification.
This new course will provide guidance and practical experience for teachers who are new to functional programming and how this area of the specification can be taught to students.
As functional programming is a new topic there is no assumption of previous knowledge but an understanding of the core concepts of HLL programming would be useful.
Please bring a laptop with Haskell installed. Haskell is available from https://www.haskell.org/
AS/A-level Computer Science: Object oriented programming
Suitable for: All teachers of AS and A-level Computer Science, regardless of exam board. Teachers who are new to teaching AS/A-level Computer Science. Teachers who are familiar with the A-level and OO programming but need some practical experience of implementing some of the key concepts in the new specifications.
This practical course will cover the fundamental concepts of object oriented programming and provide you with hands on experience of implementing some key object oriented concepts in VB.net.
The course will provide guidance to those who are just starting out with OO and provide an opportunity for those with more experience to deliver the new content with confidence. It will be useful to all teachers, regardless of exam board.
GCSE Computer Science: Intermediate Python
Focus: This intermediate Python course covers more complex techniques and skills to help extend your knowledge in Python programming. It will also prove useful for preparing students for their non-examined assessments. This practical course is not AQA specific; it will be useful to teachers of all exam boards. The topics and techniques covered will relate to examples similar to current and past assessments and will give you the opportunity to work with relevant examples of working code. You will be able to produce snippets of code that can be used in the classroom to teach concepts, equipping students with the skills they will need for future success.more info >
GCSE Computer Science: Preparing to teach
Suitable for: All teachers of GCSE Computer Science.
Focus: To help you prepare to teach the new Computer Science specification, we’re inviting you to one of our teacher training events. From planning and teaching resources, to the issues and expected outcomes of the new assessment, we’ll talk you through everything you need to bring out the best in your students. And best of all it’s free to attend.more info >
KS4 Computer Science: Make the move to Computing
Any teacher expected to deliver Key Stage 4 Computer Science, especially non-specialists who need support in moving from ICT to Computer Science.
The programme will support all Computer Science teachers regardless of exam board.
This online programme of support is an introduction to the theory of Computer Science and practical programming using Python. The online programme consists of ten, two hour Thursday after school sessions.
Recordings of all sessions will be available 24 hours after each session date. This provides added flexibility should you be unable to take part in every live session.
Each session is aimed at helping ICT teachers explore relevant topics as they move towards teaching the new GCSE (9-1) Computer Science course. Course content will be relevant to new specifications from all exam boards.
Sessions will be split into interactive workshops, using practical examples of relevant theories (such as Von Neumann architecture and layered network models) and hands-on programming sessions. By the end of the course you will have created, in Python, a fun to use game that can be used in teaching programming to your students.
No prior knowledge of Computer Science or computer programming is required.
