How to Teach Computer Programming at BETT 2014

ICT teachers, digital leaders and anyone else interested in teaching computer programming or involved in preparing for the new computing curriculum should make sure they come to our free workshop at BETT 2014, How to Teach Computer Programming.

BETT 2014 is the key education technology show, held in London, and is the ideal place for CPD for Teachers to share our experience and expertise as schools start making the transition from ICT to computing.

Our senior trainer Matt Venn will provide lots of ideas and inspiration in what promises to be a thoroughly engaging 45 minute session.

- Focus on strategies to make coding appealing and accessible to students of all ages and abilities

- Give a gentle introduction to programming language Python, including how it can be used to create worlds in Minecraft
