Optimus Education: Deliver and Assess Outstanding Progress in Secondary Computing

  1. 1. Speakers include: Miles Berry Principal Lecturer in Computing Education, University of Roehampton Laura Dixon Head of Computer Science, Royal High School Chris Coetzee Head of ICT & Computing, St. George’s CoE School • Gain practical hands-on programming experience in Visual Basics, Java & Python to take away vital coding skills • Establish a clear assessment framework to evidence progress through KS3 • Take away a step-by-step guide to writing robust schemes of work which are aligned with the new secondary computing curriculum Upskill your department: Brought to you by: www.oeconferences.com/secondarycomputing 15th October 2014 • Central London 3rd annual one-day national conference Deliver&Assess OutstandingProgressin SecondaryComputing Take away robust schemes of work, clear assessment criteria and vital hands on programming experience to prepare your whole department to deliver computing for KS3 and KS4 Last year’s event received 99% delegate satisfaction Save upto£50 w hen you book before 05.09.14
  2. 2. What do you get on the day? • High-quality content and a vital opportunity to stay up to date • Resource book containing speaker presentations and other additional resources • Access to expert speakers and leaders in the field • Opportunity to network and share best practice with peers www.oeconferences.com/secondarycomputing 3rd annual one-day national conference Deliver&AssessOutstandingProgress inSecondaryComputing Take away robust schemes of work, clear assessment criteria and vital hands on programming experience to prepare your whole department to deliver computing for KS3 and KS4 “The nature of computing as a subject is very practical.  Hands on learning [...] and understanding can bring its own challenges for the assessment of what pupils have learnt in Computing.” Jan Harrison, Professional Officer, NAACE To successfully deliver and assess the new secondary computing curriculum you will need to create schemes of work for KS3, develop an accurate assessment framework for this new subject – in place of levels – and ensure that existing teachers are equipped with the necessary programming skills. Are you and your staff equipped with the skills to do this? Optimus Education’s Deliver & Assess Outstanding Progress in Secondary Computing conference has been designed to help address this skills gap. It is the definitive event of the year for you to gain hands on practical programming skills, a wealth of Learning and Teaching resources and share best practice with leading experts and Outstanding practitioners. We are delighted to welcome Miles Berry, Principal Lecturer in Computing Education, University of Roehampton, who will clarify how to effectively map assessment onto the new secondary computing curriculum to overcome the loss of levels at KS3. In-depth sessions on the day will address: • Schemes of work: Adapt a clear strategy for writing robust schemes of work for KS3 computing in line with the new curriculum • Assessment: Take away a clear assessment framework to evidence and monitor progress in computing throughout KS3 • Delivery of lessons: Gain a raft of practical classroom ideas for delivering engaging and Outstanding computing lessons • GCSE computing: Know how to plan and implement  a successful GCSE computing qualification at your school With in-depth sessions focussing on practical programming skills and classroom strategies to deliver computing at KS3 and KS4, this event will enable you to successfully implement computing at your school. Please take a moment to look through the programme on the opposite page and complete and return the final page to secure your place. Alternatively please visit www.oeconferences.com/secondarycomputing to register online. Attend our exclusive hands-on practical programming workshops – covering Visual Basic, Java and Python – to take away real experience in coding, plus strategies to translate this into computing lessons. Other benefits of attending: • Ofsted: Hear how computing will be inspected and what you will need to evidence to achieve Outstanding in this new subject • GCSE – beyond basics: Proven strategies to embed practical programming in KS4 computing to go further than basic GCSE theory specifications What last year’s delegates said: “Excellent information and good value for money compared to many courses” Head of ICT, Box Hill School “It’s information overload, lots of things to think about and implement” Head of ICT, British School of Bucharest “Really useful and really gave me plenty to think about and prepare in my ICT department” Head of ICT, St. Joseph’s College Who should attend? 3 Heads of Computing/ICT 3 Computing/ICT Classroom Teachers 3 Headteachers 3 Deputy/Assistant Headteachers
