We are carrying out e-mail training throughout our primary schools in preparation for the change from Its Learning to Realsmart. All training should hopefully be completed by the end of the month as Its Learning will be switched off on 30th September 2014.
Please make sure all documents you require from Its learning have been downloaded by this deadline.
Further training for the Realsmart platform and Google apps will be delivered via our CPD programme.
The first session on Google Drive is being held at OpenZone on a choice of 3 dates.
- 21st October 2014 at 4pm
- 22nd October 2014 at 4pm
- 23rd October 2014 at 4pm
Please see the Autumn Term CPD Brochure for further details.
Alternatively training can be delivered in school as part of your SLA entitlement.
Throughout the Spring and Summer terms our Curriculum Development Group has been working with us on documentation to support the new Computing curriculum.
The documents produced are intended as guidance and to give a framework to the new curriculum. They are not a one stop scheme of work as we know that all of our schools cover topics in slightly different ways.
These documents are available in the Curriculum 2014 section of this website.
We have delivered several Demystifying the New Curriculum CPD sessions in schools and at Openzone to support schools in their planning. We also have CPD sessions called Computing Unplugged which provides lots of ideas for delivering computational thinking and algorithms away from a computer.
Please see our CPD section for details of further training sessions available.
We are here to help!
