I am a Junior School teacher and Hampshire Computing Lead Teacher. I was an ICT advanced Skills Teacher until the scheme was closed in April 2013. I am a CAS member and facilitate the primary group. I have published ICT planning online for over 10 years. I produce video help files to help teachers understand aspects of different programs. I firmly believe that pupils need good digital literacy skills to help them at home and in the modern work place. I also believe that pupils should be exploring how things work in all areas of the curriculum and IT is no exception. Computing and all the elements of technology that have grown from it are, in my opinion, the greatest inventions humanity has developed in living memory. My hope is that many of the pupils I teach will go on to expand this knowledge and those that don't will benefit from computational thinking and applied maths skills gained through Computer Science.
I can be contacted for advice about improving ICT or Computer Science at your school.
