NCCE Certification

 

  • Just to round off the training that I have been fortunate to receive recently: the NCCE Certificate in Computer Science Subject Knowledge has come through. Julia kindly presented me with it at BCS HQ.

BCS Certified!

Delighted to record that I have been awarded the BCS Certificate in Secondary Computer Science Teaching – my thanks to LPA for providing the experience and guidance to achieve this key qualification.

As a separate, but related, enterprise I have also been made a STEM facilitator for the National Centre for Computing Excellence (NCCE). This means that I can help to deliver the new NCCE curriculum.

Joe

Farewell to my Cousin Joe. I just wanted to record here how much I miss him – we all do. Joe always supported any tech venture that I made. The way that he pondered a concept, and gave gentle pointers was such a precious gift.

Full tribute here:

Robot Update

After a little father and son time, the latest iteration of the Garage Robot is born! Upon being shared as the designated show-and-tell item, the spinning motor jams on, resulting in a scene of suitable chaos in the classroom with the robot determinedly making the most of its chance to take a turn at the front!

Crowd Beamer

Testing out a Crowd Beamer unit lent to us by the parent of a pupil. It transmits the video signal (though not the audio) via a dedicated WiFi channel which pupils can then view, zoom in to and capture on their own devices.
