I love the idea of seeing how other practical subjects deal with kit. A great opportunity to pick up on other pedagogical methods at the same time.

My personal experience was that those students who used physical kit at key stage 3, were far more likely to opt for computer science at GCSE

Q4. The Computing Hubs will loan schools physical kit (micro:bit, Crumble and Raspberry Pi). What tips do you have for managing physical devices in the classroom and what projects would you recommend?

We are going to have many Subject Matter Experts working alongside the hubs to support around this specific issue, hopefully the message will be received in time.

I also found that the traditional methods were more effective.

A2 We got some great results at GCSE - I think spacing and interleaving material in the Do Now worked well. We did a Quick Fire Five (QFF) every lesson - 5 Q's, 1 from last lesson, last week, last month, last term, any time. i.e. in a year they do 150 Q's as starters!

Yes, I think PRIMM is an excellent pedagogical approach, and know many who are adopting it.

I agree, anything that gives the students hands on experience breeds enthusiasm and engages them from the off.
