Curriculum CPD Programme – Computing
Raising Standards in the Classroom Through Technology
Led by Mr P (Lee Parkinson)
Part 1: Where does technology fit in today’s classroom? Lee will start the day discussing where technology fits in today’s classroom. He will explain why embedding a positive focus is necessary to help students flourish in the rich digital world they are growing into and will also outline how to embed the computing curriculum effectively.
Part 2: Moving from Consumers to Creators Mr P will discuss how to best utilise technology to not just engage but empower our pupils and support them by removing barriers and allowing them to creatively demonstrate their learning in a variety of ways. He will explore how the creative use of technology can have a positive impact on other areas of the curriculum and start to demonstrate key apps and tools that teachers can use.
Part 3: Apps to bring the curriculum to life Mr P will continue to demonstrate a range of apps and tools to enhance the curriculum sharing real life examples. Teachers will have time to explore, tinker and build their own knowledge and confidence so they can hit the ground running as soon as they get back to class.
Part 4: Working Smarter, Not Harder Mr P will share a broad range of ideas and apps that can make the process of planning, assessing and teaching easier and more current for today’s world. He will explore how technology can save teacher’s time to give more effective feedback and also evidence learning in a more efficient way so teachers can reinvest time in more productive ways.
