Hour of Code

Take part in the UK Hour of Code - get coding yourself or support your pupils/colleagues to get started. Let's see if we can get everyone coding between 3-9 March.  A host of resources are available here.

 

Behind the Screen

A series of useful projects that can form part of a broad and balanced school curriculum. Originally aimed at GCSE students, there are projects that are very helpful for KS3 pupils, too.

Behind the Screen projects from eSKills can be found here.

The "Behind the Screen Conference" on 12 March is a free to attend event with a limited number of places.  It will bring together industry experts and includes professional development workshops based on the Behind the Screen projects, led by employers - bookings can be made here.

Naace Curriculum Toolkit

Naace has collaborated with Point2Educate to develop a range of freely-available content and resources to support the Naace Curriculum Framework.  The Point2Player client software offers direct access to documentation, cloud-based tools, Open Source software titles and social media that can be used in conjunction with the 2014 Computing Curriculum to provide a broad and balanced learning experience for pupils.  These tools which support the Naace Curriculum Framework utilise the free Point2Player software that can be downloaded by clicking here.
