Comprehensively up to date and restructured to mirror contemporary adjustments within the curriculum, preliminary instructor education criteria and lecture room applied sciences, it covers key features of Computing and ICT teaching:

  • Planning student studying and progression
  • Managing the training environment
  • Using review to enhance scholar studying and your individual teaching
  • Developing students’ realizing of key ideas and concepts in Computing, together with Computational considering and Programming
  • Pupils’ universal misconceptions and the way to prevent them
  • Helping scholars enjoy strong and undesirable results of computing.

A useful consultant to educating Computing and ICT within the Secondary School, written by way of specialists within the box, offers unique examples of thought in perform, allowing you to examine and examine your personal instructing with a purpose to be certain scholar studying is maximised.

Example text

Single-lesson plans. However, in order to put individual lesson plans in context and promote effective pupil progress over time, you must first take account of longer-term plans. In order to be able to decide what the next move is, you need to understand the prior experiences of the pupils and the ultimate objectives. Therefore, the next segment will focus firstly on long-, then mediumand finally short-term planning. There is a particular language associated with planning, which needs clarifying before a more full discourse is undertaken.

Evidence should be available for scrutiny and referenced, but not attached to the audit document. GRADING Please grade each of the activities below using the following scale: 1 2 3 4 24 I have good evidence that I can teach this effectively (you MUST have strong evidence from observation of your teaching to get a grade 1). I know a lot about this area and I feel fairly secure about teaching it, given pedagogical support and revision/preparation. I know about this area and could teach it given a lot of pedagogical support and revision/preparation, but am insecure at the moment.

There are two broad areas of knowledge, skills and understanding you need to demonstrate/develop: 1 2 What might be termed ‘pure’ subject knowledge, skills and understanding, the Computing knowledge, skills and understanding you have as a subject expert, which informs teaching. Pedagogical knowledge, skills and understanding; that is, how pure subject knowledge and understanding is mediated in the classroom to provide meaningful learning experiences so that pupils’ Computing knowledge, skills and understanding develops and pupils make progress in their learning.
