Transform your teaching by developing your pedagogical approach.
In the first two weeks of this course, you’ll be introduced to a range of pedagogical approaches suitable for Key Stage 3. You’ll look at a range of pedagogies aimed at developing your students’ computational thinking skills, from unplugged approaches to PRIMM, and more. You’ll also investigate worked examples and targeted tasks such as Parson’s Problems.
In the final week of this course, you’ll see several of these pedagogies in action as you work on a rock-paper-scissors game, and think about how the teaching could be adapted for use with your students.
