Publisher's Synopsis

Whether you are currently teaching or training to teach the primary computing curriculum, you need to know what effective teaching of computing in primary schools actually looks like. Written for non specialists and trainees, this book uses exemplar primary computing lessons as a starting point for developing subject knowledge. It′s a unique but tried and tested approach to developing your computing subject knowledge alongside your teaching practice. 

The current computing curriculum is explored in manageable chunks and there is no "scary" tech speak; everything is explained clearly and accessibly. You will find example lesson plans alongside every element of the curriculum that can be adapted to suit different year groups and different schools. This resourceful guide inspires an approach to teaching computing that is about creativity and encouraging problem solving using technology as a tool.
