Description:

The purpose of the project is to offer specialist expertise in the process of linear assessment for Computer Science departments embarking on the KS4 linear framework. The sessions provided will offer inside examiner knowledge based advice and training on how to deliver sessions on Computing in schools, and how best to build the skills of KS4 students to pass 2 exams at the end of the linear assessment process. There are 6 sessions in this training programme.

CAS Tyneside Hub Meeting
Organiser(s): Mike Carter <m.carterlea@gmail.com>, TynCan Learning; Nick Cook <nick.cook@newcastle.ac.uk>, Newcastle University
Speaker(s): Nick Cook, Newcastle University; Marty Edwards, Learn IT Compute IT
Start:
End:
Target Key Stages: KS2, KS3, KS4
Charge: Free
Venue: Newcastle University <http://www.ncl.ac.uk/computing/>, School of Computing, Urban Sciences Building, Newcastle NE4 5TG
Description:

At this Hub meeting Marty Edwards will lead a hands-on session to edublocks - an programming environment specifically designed for transition from block based programming similar to Scratch to Python. Nick Cook will lead a session on using Scratch to simulate real-world biological systems such as epidemics and predator-prey ecosystems. This is a relatively simple introduction to modelling and simulation that can be quite powerful in itself but also lead onto the use of more complex environments such as StarLogoNG and NetLogo. Both sessions should be of interest to KS2 and KS3 teachers.
