About This Course

An overview of the Computing Curriculum is followed by a deeper dive into how it can help engage your students, including practical classroom examples

What you’ll learn

  • How to use Unplugged Computing to improve the principles of computational thinking is at a good standard before diving into computer science and coding.
  • How to teach coding using Block Based Programming.
  • How to teach coding using Text Based Programming.
  • What other recourses could be used to teach computing and coding to primary school students.
  • Robots are a good medium for helping to teach coding to students as they can see first-hand how their coding skills can manipulate a physical object rather than just a digital simulation. This also helps demonstrate how coding can be applied to the real-world.
