“What and how do I teach my Year 7s?”

This workshop provides an opportunity to answer your questions and give practical  advice on creative and integrated lesson  planning, kinaesthetic learning activities, and  use of technology to enhance pedagogy. Secondary teachers will also gain a valuable  insight into primary ICT (Computing)  curriculum to help your department  overcome the (Key Stage 2/3) transitional  challenges. Mark will also share some of  the secrets behind the successful Digital  Schoolhouse model operating at Langley  Grammar School.
