As Lead Practitioner one of my favourite parts of the role is sharing ideas and networking with other teachers, I am therefore particulary happy that I have two conferences coming up.
Next Wednesday I am holding a workshop at the ICT Subject Leaders Conference in Kent. The workshop will be based on using Scratch to make computer games and will give a basic overview on how to use the software with demonstrations. I will also be providing some teaching resources to accompany the session.
If you would like more details about this conference or wish to book a place contact your local advisor.
Recently I have also been asked to deliver a workshop at the SSAT Annual Maths & Computing Conference on 23rd and 24th June. This will be based on the use of robots in the classroom. The primary focus will be Lego Mindstorms and Go-Robo software for use with WowWee robots. WowWee Robotics have kindly offered to provide samples for the day and I have also written to several other companies to try to provide as much of a hands-on experience as possible.
