Previously known as Teaching ICT, this second edition has been carefully revised to meet the new demands of computer science as a curriculum subject.
With a clear focus on the theory and practice that supports high quality teaching, this textbook provides pragmatic guidance on how to plan, teach, manage and assess computer science teaching.
Key coverage includes:
· An awareness of the requirements of the 2014 National Curriculum for England
· Developing computational thinking and digital literacy in your classroom
· Pedagogy for teaching computer programming
· Computer science in primary schools and the transition to secondary
This is essential reading for secondary computer science student teachers and for those on primary initial teacher education courses seeking a greater understanding of the subject, including school-based (SCITT, School Direct, Teach First), university-based (PGCE, PGDE, BEd, BA QTS) and employment-based routes into teaching, and current teachers updating their practice.
Carl Simmons and Claire Hawkins are Senior Lecturers at Edge Hill University.
