Attention Computing Teachers! Are you ready for September?


Book your place at CAS Conference

29 May 2014

With the new computing curriculum coming in to force in September - the Computing At School (CAS) conference is must for teachers preparing to deliver it.

Simon Humphreys, National Coordinator CAS says: “The CAS Conference provides an ideal opportunity to find out about the new curriculum, and how to introduce computer science in to your classroom.

“The conference will provide a unique opportunity to hear from practising teachers and educators about developing computing in schools. It will hopefully provide inspiration and help you breathe more life into your lessons, find dynamic resources to engage your pupils and enhance your own skill.”

CAS, which is supported by BCS, The Chartered Institute for IT, is holding this year’s conference at the University of Birmingham on Saturday 21 June. In addition, on Friday 20 June, there will be a pre-conference CPD training day with workshops for both secondary and primary school teachers, presented by CAS Master Teachers.

The event will include a mix of plenary sessions, over 30 different workshops, opportunities to network and practical examples of lessons and other resources that can be used in the classroom.

Guest speakers include Tony Hey from Microsoft speaking about computational thinking and Quintin Cutts from Glasgow University who will be talking about the pedagogy of Computing in school.

There will also be presentations and workshops from CAS Master Teachers and other experienced practitioners keen to share their knowledge and understanding.
