How are schools coping with the new Computing curriculum?

Now that a term has elapsed since the new Computing curriculum was introduced into schools in England, how are things going? I’ve been collating the responses to a call I made a few months ago to readers of my newsletter, to find out how people were preparing for the new curriculum. The results are very interesting, and I intend to share them very soon – I just have to tidy it up and make sure people are happy with any changes I’ve made to their submissions.

This new research is along the same lines, and is really just to inform a discussion I’m chairing at the Bett show. Before anyone says anything, it is not intended to be academic in nature, but to give us a flavour of what people are thinking. If you would like to contribute to questions like “What are the challenges of the new curriculum?” and “Has the abandonment of ‘Levels’ helped or hindered’'?”, we’d be delighted to know your thoughts. There is a very short survey form, and you don’t even have to give your name if you don’t want to.

If you do decide to complete the form, you’ll then be taken to a website where you can view everyone else’s responses.

The seminar details are as follows, in case you haven’t already seen them:

Wednesday (21st) from 4 pm to 4:45 pm in the Primary Theatre. The link on the Bett website is here: One term in: reviewing the new Computing curriculum

Have  a look at that website to see the list of panellists.

Thanks in advance for your thoughts/contributions.
