Teaching and Leading KS2 Computing Module 2
Through key stage 2, the computing curriculum aims to deepen understanding of computer science, information technology and digital literacy. Children become more skilled, and critical, users of technology, choosing tools that helps them achieve their goals while developing safe, and acceptable, online behaviours.
This CPD, the first of two modules, seeks to broaden your understanding across the whole computing curriculum. You will demystify computers, developing understanding of data fundamentals such as binary, and learning how the parts of a computer system handle this data to carry out useful tasks. You will strengthen your knowledge of computer networks, including the internet and technologies such as search engines and email that make use of it.
This course is for primary computing coordinators looking to develop their own teaching and that of their colleagues or any primary teacher or senior leader interested in teaching computing.
The first teacher to participate in this CPD, from each primary or all-through school, will be eligible for a bursary upon completion of both modules.
This course is approximately five hours in duration, split across four days and including two gap tasks.
