OCR offered stimulating and innovative support for IT and Computing teachers at BETT 2014, with the help of wonderful partners – Raspberry Pi, CUP, Maggie Philbin, Dr Tom Crick, Computing At School, Zondle and CoderDojo, to name just a few.
The Computing MOOC for schools was praised at BETT by Education Secretary Michael Gove. You can read more about this on the Cambridge Assessment website.
Here’s a snapshot of BETT 2014:
We’ll be sharing our expertise in supporting IT and Computing teachers at the Education and Innovation Conference Exhibition (EICE) in Manchester on 27/28 February. If you didn’t make it to BETT, we hope to see you there.
Stop Press: You may also be interested in joining the ‘Schools in the Cloud’ debate that our parent organisation, Cambridge Assessment, is holding at the British Library in London on 11 February. As experts in assessment, Cambridge Assessment believes that a sensible debate is needed on the future for face-to-face teaching and learning. The event brings together a panel of experts (including Professor Sugatra Mitra and Lord David Puttnam) to debate the ways in which technology could – and should – transform the fundamentals of education and assessment.
