A3: Be on Twitter more and take more of an active part as well as visiting as many other schools as possible to see how they do things in Computer Science and T&L across the school. Any invites?

My key priority for Computing CPD in general would be for schools to recognise the importance of Computing and support the delivery of it and take it seriously.

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.

Worst phrase I hear from primary teachers “I am just learning computing alongside the children.” Would you be happy sending a child to a school where the teacher was learning maths alongside the children? We all learn from children but we owe them more!

Yet it is this 'softer' side at Prinmary, I am convinced, that shows ass real life applications and will help with the take up of CS into Secondary and into future careers

Unplugged is great but IMO you do need to link it to the concept you’re teaching in computing: this can be via semantic waves (repacking after unpacking) or doing some programming on that topic. Unplugged makes complex ideas accessible as long as you link bk to the idea

Love your QFF will steal I’m old (Skool) so I use ‘proper’ revision methods like make them copy, cover, write and use index cards. They copy markscheme answers they get wrong x3.

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?

A5 make sure you actually do the activitiesyoure delivering. Don’t just use someone else’s ppt And think it’ll work. You need to figure out what the kids will get stuck on. And the misconceptions.

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
