Do you have school iPads? Are you looking for ideas to get started with coding in your class? This is the course for you!

I’m very excited to be working with Western Computer, on a series of day long courses for teachers. Aimed at inspiring those that want to get the most from this exciting and relevant technology.

Coding with iPad will be held at Western Computer, Temple Meads, Bristol. It has been created by Oscar Stringer to ensure Primary teachers can;

  • Develop confidence and ideas for using iPads effectively to teach coding, and understand the recommendations of the National Curriculum.
  • Explore activities for explaining and creating algorithms, with students in class.
  • Develop an awareness of how a selection of apps can support teachers and students needs.
  • Discover the latest features of these cool apps and learn how to program Sphero’s and Robots.
  • Find and use resources to sustain the teaching and exploring of coding in class.

 

Discover more and Empower all with your iPad.

The course is for those new to the concepts and language used in the world of coding and programming.

The iPad and relevant apps are developing quickly and becoming more useful to teachers and students. I will help you navigate this new world of apps and workflows. We will use the new coding app from Apple, Swift Playgrounds, along with several other free apps.

The cost of the day long course is £160.00 pp or £250.00 + vat for two teachers from the same school. The app list will be forwarded on receipt of your booking form. iPads can be provided as well as lunch. We always invoice after you have attended the course.

The course will be led by Oscar Stringer an Apple Education Trainer, who has been working with Apple technologies in schools for over twenty years. Oscar works part-time, as a facilitator at the Apple iOS Academy in Naples. Running a series of workshops on collaboration, creativity and communication.

The training will take place at Western Computer, Temple Meads, Bristol on 30th November 2017 9.45am – 3.30pm The course is for all teachers and support staff in KS1 and KS2.

Feedback from past workshop

“Yesterday was very useful and inspirational! I am hoping to cascade it to our prep department asap and also to talk our ICT coordinator into procuring some spheros. I enjoyed the style of the day whereby we were actively trying out the apps and investigating the variety whilst also having discussions around cross-curricular use. The introduction and explanation of what algorithms are was also a great way to draw us into then using the first app.” – Trevor

“The course on Tuesday was incredibly informative; we recently purchased 45 new iPads so was really useful to have a list of recommended apps to use and pass on to staff. The consensus with the staff at my school is that they find Scratch quite tricky, so the various coding apps will certainly make them feel at ease.” – James
