The CAS North East Regional Conference is a day of high quality CPD delivered by experienced teacher trainers and practitioners with a focus on lessons to take back to school and opportunities to share practice and ideas with colleagues across the region.
The conference offers a range of hands-on practical sessions on how to deliver various aspects of the computing curriculum in both primary and secondary school. Topics covered include:
- approaches to computational thinking
- computing without computers
- curriculum planning
- data representation
- physical computing
- primary and secondary programming
- computing in Early Years
