Delivering the NI Curriculum with Apple: Computational Thinking & Coding
Join Academia and BlendEd NI for a creative session looking at how you can use your iPad to meet the statutory UICT Levels of Progression by using CCEA’s Desirable Features.
We'll explore ideas to help pupils:
Explore digital environments and create programs with block-based coding apps
Develop problem-solving skills
Write instructions to carry out an activity (algorithm)
Identify why some instructions or commands haven't worked and fixing them (debugging)
Break down projects or problems into smaller parts (decomposition)
Use logical reasoning to predict what will happen if they enter a command or set of commands in a coding project
use logical reasoning to predict what will happen if they enter a command or set of commands in a coding project
You'll be signposted to readily available resources to support you in your curriculum delivery.
