The NCCE’s new computing activities for students
The National Centre for Computing Education has launched Home teaching, a programme of high-quality, free, computing activities for students of all ages. The new programme is designed to help students to continue their computing studies while at home. Teachers and parents will be able to schedule the activities as part of the school day.
The programme includes:
- A timetable of sequential, topic-led activities
- Live online support
- Covers priority topics across all key stages
The units of work feature high-quality and fun computing activities, grouped by key stage.
There are also live drop-in sessions, offering help to students from expert computing teachers based at the NCCE’s School Hubs.
These Q&A sessions will be available every day to help explain the key principles of the weekly featured topics and identify misconceptions.
Julia Adamson, Director of Education at BCS, said; “We’re thrilled to be able to offer this new Home Teaching programme through the National Centre for Computing Education. As a parent of three school age children myself, I know how important it is to support teachers and families right now to bring high quality learning opportunities into the home.
“The six-week timetable runs over summer term featuring live online support from teacher experts, it’s a great resource for students at every key stage, their parents and teachers.”
