Last year, the UK changed the national curriculum to include real computer science!
While this is great news for kids and the UK in general, a lot of teachers have been left struggling with little warning or training.
I initially started working with cpdforteachers to develop a raspberry pi course. This was such a fun course to create and run – we’ve had teachers creating a machine that detects a cake theft with an infra red sensor, then takes a photo and tweets it with the title ‘cake thief!’. The course eventually turned into our raspberry pi inventions course as we realised we also needed a total beginners course.
Since then we’ve added python courses beginners and for KS4, and also a course on actually how to teach programming – using physical games, scratch, python and more. Take a look at the CPD for teachers website for all the available courses!
