Mark Dorling, Queen Mary University of London
Mark will share ideas for the why, how and what of the new computing curriculum and, in particular, what Computational Thinking is and how to integrate it into your pedagogy. Mark will also introduce freely available assessment frameworks to help you understand what progression looks like and how it can be applied to measuring progress of your pupil: from the progression pathways (http://community.computingatschool.org.uk/resources/2324) to your planning.
