Free Computer Science CPD – Assessing Computational Thinking in Primary Schools
A short course providing practical guidance on the assessment of key thinking skills in primary computing
Computational thinking lies at the heart of the national curriculum. It includes the key building blocks for success in computing such as using abstraction to simplify problems, or how to decompose problems into smaller chunks. As computational thinking skills develop children become more adept at applying logic, spotting patterns, planning algorithms and evaluating computer programs.
This CPD includes easily applied, practical approaches to assessing the development of computational thinking. Developing these techniques will help you to gauge what is expected of learners as they progress through primary school.
Tuesday 3 May – 2:30pm – 4:00pm
Free to attend for teachers from state maintained schools
