Whether you’re a teacher or student of Computer Science, keeping up with an ever changing subject is tough.
With so much content to cover, and new discoveries changing the way and topics that we study it’s impossible to know where to begin sometimes! Have you ever thought “Where do I start?”, “How will I understand all of this?” – you’re not alone. When I first started teaching Computer Science, I wished that I had a place to turn to when a topic stumped me and to let me know that all the hard work would be worth it (it is).
Have you been teaching or learning in the best way possible? If the answer is yes, then amazing! I’m really proud of you! If the answer is no, then let’s figure out what is in your way. What is holding you back? Do you have a plan to keep you on track more than just a scheme of work or revision timetable? Do you need some support to work towards the end goal of being the very best you can be?
I genuinely believe that anyone can make progress in Computer Science with the right support. This often doesn’t mean the same support, but accessing equity and providing enough structure for everyone to access the curriculum without feeling like a rabbit in the headlights. That’s not to say that it isn’t a tough path to follow, but it’s not an impossible one.
With newer courses cramming in so many topics in such a small space of time, it’s so easy to feel overwhelmed and put off tackling the tough stuff then never make the progress that you intended to at the start of the year. Despite all the pressures of the academic year, you can turn those intentions into a reality. My no frills strategy of Find it, Learn it, Teach it is something that I deeply believe in for both teachers and students.
This is where the TeachAllAboutIT members area makes a difference
I’ve worked incredibly hard to produce free topic introductions for Computer Science, but the members area is for teachers and students who want even more. With a subject that is growing year on year and impacts on everyone’s lives across the globe, joining the members area allows you to work alongside a group of subject specialists and enthusiasts, so you can keep learning with the support and inspiration that you deserve.
Each month we will be upload exclusive content specific to teaching and learning Computer Science for paid members. Some of the topics will include:
- Understanding the fundamental topics of Computer Science
- How to deliver content heavy topics in a fun way
- Printables for study and revision
- Ideas and strategies for assessing progress
- Classroom resources to deliver creative lessons without the stress
- + much more.
Most exciting is the members only Q&A session. The session itself will be broadcast live, with members given the opportunity to send in all their Computer Science questions for me to answer over on the TeachAllAboutIT YouTube Channel alongside special guests from a whole host of areas.
I can’t wait to see you there!
