Andrew Charlton, Venerable Bede CoE Academy
This session will introduce some excellent free tools and services, which we can use in our classrooms to help us:
- Distribute skeleton code to our students.
- Collect work in without having to save a bunch of email attachments.
- Provide immediate feedback on our students’ work.
- Create a dialogue between teachers and students, to help them progress.
- Keep a record of how our students’ work evolves as a result of feedback.
We will be using Python as our programming language in this session but the tools used are language-agnostic, and only a very basic knowledge of Python will be necessary. The tools/services we will be using are industry-standard and include: Git, GitHub and Travis CI.
Relevant Key Stages: KS3, KS4, KS5
