What is a Barefoot Workshop?

Barefoot workshops are all delivered online by our network of experienced volunteers. You can book yourself onto a session of your choice, at a time and date that works for you. 

We currently offer two workshops, Computational Thinking and Programming, and will be expanding on this portfolio soon.

Please use the tabs below to find out more about our workshops, access a calendar of available sessions and book your place. If you would like all staff in your school to attend, just find a workshop with enough spaces and ask each staff member to book their own place. 

If you have a bespoke workshop request, please contact us at [email protected]

Please note that our workshops are only available in English.


What will the workshop cover?

Designed to boost subject knowledge and confidence, this workshop will introduce you to computational thinking and help you get started with Barefoot.

During the online interactive session, you will give some of Barefoot’s “unplugged” activities a try – proving you don’t need expensive kit to teach computing. You’ll also be introduced to the Barefoot website and our fantastic range of lesson plans and resources.


Do I need any prior experience?

This workshop is targeted at teachers with little experience and confidence in teaching computational thinking and computer science.

Unsure about algorithms or decomposition? This session will provide the perfect introduction and support you to get started, providing reassurance and next steps.


How long, when and where?

Our Computational Thinking Workshops are all hosted online through either Microsoft Teams, Zoom or Google Meet. Workshops typically last 60-75 minutes – with plenty of time to ask questions.
