Quick start computing guide

The Quick Start Computing Guide now available


If you haven’t had a look at this brilliant FREE guide, then please do NOW!  This website and pack is a professional development resource to help teachers deliver the new computing curriculum in primary and secondary schools.

Each section includes material that explores the subject matter, offers teaching guidance and planning advice together with practical activities to use in the classroom.

Sections include:

  • Introduction
  • Computational thinking
  • Programming
  • Technology
  • Computer networks
  • Communication and collaboration
  • Productivity and creativity
  • Safe and responsible use
  • Planning
  • Teaching
  • Assessment
  • Running CPD sessions

I have only looked at the primary resource pack so far, but really like the way it is laid out and the approach it takes.  It speaks common sense and will alleviate many fears that primary teachers have had about programming and coding at KS1 and KS2.  If you weren’t sure what to do up to now, then this guide will really help you.speech1 speech2
