World (Computing) Book Day 2022
With World Book Day fast approaching on Thursday 3rd March, I believe it is the perfect time to think about how we could celebrate excellent computing books in our classes, alongside the usual digest. This year is the 25th anniversary of World Book Day and it would be fabulous if it could be filled with lots of exciting computing books to read too. So I need your help!
In a previous post, I mentioned about creating a library area in my ICT Suite. Previously, I asked for computing book recommendations and I would love you to hear from you again regarding this! I am in the process of revamping the space ready for my book collection but wish to fill the shelves with even more beautiful books. Therefore, could you please share below, in the comments section, your top 3 brilliant books to support children with their understanding of computing. Fiction and non-fiction would be great – or a bit of both? Also, what age/year group are the books suitable for?
If possible, could you also consider how you share or use these books: Are they in the class or school library? Are they only used for online safety sessions? Are they used for PHSE or other cross-curricular activities? Are there computing books in your school reading scheme?
Continuing with this theme, on Tuesday 8th February at 5pm, Beverly Clarke be holding a World Book Day Instagram Live to discuss all things World Book Day with a computing twist! Special guests will include myself and Rebecca Franks, and we would love you to join us to share your own ideas too. Follow CAS on Instagram to access the live session and have your questions and cuppa ready:
