About the CAS Community
CAS is the subject association for computing. The CAS community is for individuals passionate about giving our children a great education in computing.
We meet as real people, use our real names, share our work affiliation and location (work or home, it’s up to you), and use a real photo of ourselves. Doing so helps to maintain a respectful and supportive tone; and to locate colleagues who live or work nearby. We can’t stop you uploading a false photo or location. But we urge you to do so only if you have very strong personal reasons for doing so.
CAS is an inclusive community
Membership is open to anyone passionate about computing education, including teachers, academics, IT professionals, parents, school governors, educational publishers and suppliers, and others. Please note that school age students are not permitted to join the CAS Community.
CAS welcomes individuals who work for educational publishers and suppliers, as contributing members of the community. Educational suppliers form a key part of our ecosystem. However, we do not allow advertising products or services on the CAS community site.
The CAS Website
The CAS Website enables us to meet, talk, exchange ideas, and share resources.
CAS is a friendly, welcoming, supportive group. That is a precious culture and one that should be reflected in the tone of every posting. Our goal is to provide a safe, constructive and reasonably private place, where support and encouragement is available to teachers and other members.
There are a range of contributing tools on offer to members including blogs, resources, and discussions. When you are posting content please remember to be kind, truthful, supportive, tactful and encouraging.
We reserve the right to remove any content that falls outside these guidelines.
Resources are shared by members, and are freely available to all.
Sharing is not always easy. Our experience shows that the main problem is not that there is no material to share, but that teachers think their material it is not good enough. We often hear: “Yes, I’m happy to share, but just give me time to polish it, I’ll upload it when I have time”. Of course, we all know that the time when you have time never comes. So, the main message of CAS Community is: Share it anyway
Access to resources in the CAS Website is managed by the original author who can choose whether other members can edit them. We trust each other. Others may continue and extend your work, improve it and make it better.
