Practical tips for teachers, pupils and parents
The National Centre for Computing Education is continuing to offer support to teachers, pupils and now their families by developing and sharing a range of online materials whilst schools and colleges are closed and learning is happening remotely. The support the NCCE offers is free to access.
Resources to help you deliver remote teaching
You can access a fantastic online resource repository at any time. There are lesson plans, unplugged activities, and schemes of work that can be used to teach pupils, from primary up to GCSE level.
Free resources for home learning and continuing in-school delivery are also available on the STEM Learning website, with new content added every week.
A level Computer Science teachers can use the NCCE’s free online learning platform Isaac Computer Science to save time looking for quality material and questions to set your students. There’s even an opportunity for students to get their hands on free Raspberry Pi 4 kits as part of our Student Rewards Programme.
You can also keep up-to-date with the computing world by listening to the NCCE podcast, where experts, teachers, and educators come together to discuss computing education. In the latest episode there’s tips and advice for creating virtual classrooms or communities. Google Classroom came out as a valuable tool that many schools are turning to at this time, along with other tools like Microsoft Teams.
Online learning for you
The NCCE’s extensive range of free online training courses are still running and can support you to develop your subject knowledge in computing at all key stages. They also count towards our Primary Computing and GCSE Computer Science certificates.
