Decoding the new computing curriculum
This year there has been a great deal of emphasis placed by Turn IT On’s curriculum team on decoding the new computing curriculum ahead of its deployment in September. Our training sessions have aimed to demystify the meaning of specific strands; the phraseology of which can be off-putting and confusing.
If you have not already downloaded the resources and presentation used in the training sessions, please do take a look. The presentation disseminates the meanings behind key phrases such as ‘algorithms’. It is clear from this great post on Microsoft’s UK Schools Blog that we are not the only ones helping teachers who crave the clarification of confusing terminology.
Please email us if you would like to book a training session at your school in which a practical computing curriculum plan can be put in place. Alternatively, if you simply have a question about the new curriculum or would like our advice on plans you are already implementing, please do get in touch. Our curriculum team of ex-teachers will be glad to hear from you.
