Secondary: Computing Conference 2019

Secondary Computing for all

Outline

We are delighted to once again be able to offer this year’s conference in partnership with the Exa.Foundation which is our local not-for-profit initiative designed to directly support schools in teaching pupils about technology. Joining us on the day will be award winning former teacher and computing master teacher Alan O’Donohoe, who is also specialist leader in Education at Exa.Foundation. His keynote address will enthuse and motivate and will explore strategies that will ensure that all learners and staff achieve success within the computing. You cannot afford to miss out on this opportunity!

Description

The keynote speaker Alan O’Donohoe has more than twenty years of experience in teaching with technology, ICT and Computing. In the last few years he has led a nationwide programme of engaging events for schools, teachers and families covering a range of topics - from the educational potential of the Raspberry Pi computer to teaching text-based programming with Python. His sessions consistently receive outstanding feedback and are regularly oversubscribed, so we’re really excited to have him on board to inspire, support, and promote the teaching of technology and e-safety practice within schools.

A range of workshops will also be available during the day for individual delegates to select based on their own school priorities.

‘THE EXA.FOUNDATION EXISTS TO INSPIRE & ENGAGE THE DIGITAL MAKERS OF TOMORROW, SUPPORT OUTSTANDING COMPUTING IN SCHOOLS AND PROMOTE SAFE, SECURE AND APPROPRIATE USE OF TECHNOLOGY’

Outcomes

Attending the conference will support subject leaders and teachers to:

  • share and build on effective local practice;
