Face to face activity suspended until further notice.
Our priority is the health and safety of everyone that we work with, particularly our teachers and staff. In light of the outbreak of the coronavirus (COVID-19), and the latest advice from Government all CAS scheduled face-to-face events have now been suspended, until further notice.
Meanwhile we are looking at how our face-to-face events can be moved online.
This is an unprecedented challenging time for everyone, but particularly teachers - you are true heroes! Our aim is to help keep our amazing community supported and encouraged through this very difficult time. It’s great to see that Virtual CAS Community Meetings have already started to take place.
CAS Community Meetings
For scheduled Community Meetings, we are supporting Community Leaders to switch these online or postpone them to later in the year. Please check the Community Events page for details.
We have several CAS Conferences scheduled for the summer term, we are reviewing contingency plans for alternative virtual arrangements to be put in place.
CAS Outreach Team
For staff at BCS, including those who support Computing at School, we have established flexible home working. If you’re due to meet one of the team, they’ll be in touch with you to agree plans to switch any upcoming scheduled meetings to virtual.
We want to continue to encourage and support you to engage with the CAS Community of Practice and there are several ways you can do that online:
- Join us on Facebook - https://www.facebook.com/Computing-at-School
- Join the conversation in the CAS Forum and #CASChat (Tuesdays 8 - 9pm)
- Visit Barefoot Computing - https://www.barefootcomputing.org for new resources, including brand new Data Champions
CAS is part of the National Centre for Computing Education, visit Teach Computing for online CPD and resources.
If you need support with any aspect of Computing at School you can contact us via email firstname.lastname@example.org; Twitter @CompAtSch; or Facebook @Computing-at-School.
Wishing you all the very best,
Julia Adamson, Director of Education, BCS
