Don’t wait until September

Get ready now – don’t wait until September

As the Summer fast approaches and phonics testing, reports, sports day, parents evenings are taking up all of your time, spare a thought for how you are going to deliver the new Computing Curriculum.  Despite all the media hype, this new curriculum is not all about coding and programming, there is so much more in there.

“Computing also ensures that pupils become digitally literate – able to use, and express themselves and develop their ideas through, information and communication technology – at a level suitable for the future workplace and as active participants in a digital world.”

There are many exciting projects and activities that you can use technology for that will help pupils become digitally literate:

  • Digital image manipulation
  • Video recording and editing
  • Stop motion animation
  • Podcasting
  • Radio broadcasts
  • Graphic design

This new curriculum also states that we should ensure pupils

“…are responsible, competent, confident and creative users of information and communication technology”

How will you integrate e-safety into your teaching so that it is delivered on a regular basis and not just at the start of the term or on Safer Internet Day?

So, don’t just concentrate on coding and programming and forget about all the other great stuff that can and should still be done!  We can help you prepare with the support that you need for your school:

  • An introduction to the new curriculum
  • E-safety for parents, staff, pupils or governors
  • Using iPads effectively in the classroom and maximising your investment
  • A Framework for teaching the new curriculum that isnt just about programming
