Talk for Computing

Talk for computing is a method of assessing pupils work and attitudes towards computational thinking, programming and debugging through a combination of teacher designed questions, pupil initiated reflections and pupil teacher conversations. These can be collected through a video booth, table mounted video mount or captured as icons on the app by the teacher.

The slides from CAS Birmingham Conference outlining this approach can be found here (Without the videos)

Further questions to help teachers use this with my computing science resources will be published here soon.

The link to the app can be found here

If using the app please note that neither myself or @lescarr accept any responsibility for use or support. We offer the app as is and welcome feedback via email or DM on twitter @baggiepr
