Computing for learning offer a range of workshops for Primary Schools to support coding and computing in the primary curriculum. I am an experienced former Primary Teacher and Headteacher and I have always had a passion for teaching computing and ICT throughout my career. I have led a wide range of professional development for staff and last year I achieved Raspberry Pi certified educator status.

A range of workshops I can offer include

Introduction to coding using the Scratch educational programming language. A great way to introduce children to computing and learn some important concepts whilst having fun at the same time.

Physical computing with the BBC microbit. Take coding skills further with the BBC microbit, control electronics with code make sounds go loud and lights flash.

Learn basic HTML the language of the web. Children can learn how a simple website is built and develop some skills to begin to write web code of their own.

E-safety - how to enjoy life online, stay aware of the dangers and keep yourself safe.

This is by no means an exhaustive list of what I offer and I am happy to discuss your needs with you. I am happy to work with you wherever you are be it just beginning to code with children or taking children with some experience onto physical computing. A workshop day can be used as INSET for staff leaving a legacy for a school or alternatively as an experienced teacher I am happy to be left with a class and the workshop could be used in place of supply teaching.

I am also able to lead INSET sessions for staff please contact me to discuss your requirements.

Workshops can end with a parent’s showcase where parents are able to visit the classroom to see their children’s learning in action.

Please enquire to find out more I am keen to build bespoke packages to meet your needs.
