Wednesday evening was the inaugural meeting, run by me, designed to get local teachers together to talk about and share ideas about including Computing in the curriculum from KS3 to KS5.
It was a bit of a “Field Of Dreams” moment – if you build it, they will come…
And thankfully, they did. We had 12 people, including two university academics, and lots and lots of good stuff came out of it. I go the impression that the teachers in the room came away feeling more confident that the teaching of Computing is a good thing and I know I came away with loads fo really good feedback about where CAS can move forwards and provide more support for teachers and for network managers.
The resources from the evening are posted on a small Google Site I created and the plan is to run another meeting next term.
So if you’re not a member of CAS and you are interested in Computing – get signed up. If you’re interested in Computing and live anywhere in the North East – get on my mailing list. And if you have a passion or an agenda of your own and you want to share it with others – do so!
