Click here to go to slides. Thank you to Oliver and the Raspberry Pi Foundation for the opportunity to start to develop this strand.
Only 20% of current 9_1 Computer Science GCSEs are Python… 50% theory means we should be focussed on how to teach theory well and keeping up-to-date with latest techniques to do this underpinned with theory and a shared understanding of what works well.
I hope to make a contribution to this discussion. Please feel free to join in on #caschat and CAS forum in the next few weeks.

“This session will provide an introduction to the Raspberry Pi and first-hand experience of setting up a Pi-Lab. Then some thoughts on how it fits in with the KS3 curriculum as well as Code Clubs. The second half of the session will be hands-on using a Raspberry Pi for an example KS3 lesson”.
“Digital Leaders can mean many things but this session will help you gain insights into how students can help you with implementing an effective computing curriculum. You will be shown stages of developing Digital Leaders and given time to discuss and plan how you might develop their use in your school including running Code Clubs”.

Lady Lumley’s School, North Yorkshire – @gr8ict /Chris Sharples (Secondary) – confirmed 20/10/15
Title – “How Digital Leaders run cracking coding Clubs”
Description – with so much change within Computing at present, a key requirement is to build capacity for learning programming. Y9 LLS DLs will talk about setting up Raspberry Pi’s and using them for Y9 Code Club and then in lessons. Y7 LLS DLs to talk about setting up Y7 Code Club with the approach of the BBC Microbit. They will also mention Makewaves ( 2016 BETT winner for ICT Innovator of the Year) and DL #openbadges.

In two months time, a group of Lady Lumley’s Digital Leaders are being flown to Warsaw to present at a Polish Education conference. This will be the highlight of two months collaboration with Polish students from the Primary School “Samorządowa Szkoła Podstawowa nr 6 im. Jana Pawła II” in Wrzesnia. The coordinator had the idea at BETT when he heard us debate and learned we were Digital Leaders, which was a new concept to him. Most of all he was impressed with how the we handled the debate in front of so many people with no intimidation. We will be presenting the results of our project during the conference on 15 May 2015. There will be a 30-minute slot for the debate which will be in Polish with a simultaneous translation provided for us through headphones.

6 Secondary Digital Leaders / Chris Sharples (@gr8ict) / Students & Head of ICT at Lady Lumley’s School
“We should be developing young people as much as the technology. Digital Leaders from Lady Lumley’s School will explain how they work as Digital Leaders in school; working with students, teachers and the eLearning Manager; earning DL badges and sharing their experiences on the Makewaves social media platform with other DLs in other schools as part of the DL network. Chris will give some insights to help you set up and nurture your own Digital Leaders if you don’t have them already and point you towards useful contacts, examples and resources on the DLN blog, Makewaves Digital Leader Network and www.gr8ict.com”
