SiS Workshop - Basic Computer Programming
Date: 24 January 2018
Would you like to add a new skill to help you stand out in the classroom? Teaching basic computer programming is now part of the national curriculum and this is a chance to learn the basics yourself. Kevin Garner from the Digital Eagles team at Barclays will be leading this training.
During this session you will gain an understanding of Scratch, the graphical coding language used to teach the fundamentals of coding to children aged 7 – 17 years old. There will also be an introduction to BBC Microbit, a device used in schools to teach physical computing.
There will be a small number of laptops available in the session but it would be ideal to bring your own laptop or device if possible.
Only available for University of Leeds students and recent graduates.
