    Learn How to Use AI as a Primary Teacher: A Safe and Successful Practical Guide (Webinar) – 8 July 2024

    by Hannah Richardson -

    Artificial intelligence (AI) is rapidly changing the world, and education is no exception. Join Phil Bagge in a practical exploration of how we can safely and freely use AI to enhance many of the teaching tasks we carry out on a daily basis, such as:

    • Curriculum design 
    • Presenting ideas 
    • Testing 
    • Marking 

    This course is not a computing course; although we will use technology, it is about helping primary educators enhance learning in all subjects through the careful use of AI while understanding the limitations and drawbacks of the technology at this stage of its development.

    Have you booked yet for our Introduction to Computing Course for New Computing Leads 24-25 (Webinar)? – 13 September and 27 September 2024

    by Hannah Richardson -

    Course Outline: 

    • Discover what computing contains 
    • Learn about multiple methods to teach programming, Information technology, and develop digital literacy 
    • Discover how research into progression can inform your practice 
    • Consider classroom management and assessment 

    This course is not designed to teach you how to program or use IT but how to help you make informed decisions on which pedagogy to use and when to use it.

    We dig into progression and assessment in detail. We also look at the best ways to support pupils and teachers who find computing difficult. It will help you build a curriculum as well as teach it and support it. We will look at knowledge development, retrieval practice, careful sequencing of learning and staff training.
