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.

Teacher Testimonials

Take a look at some testimonials received from teachers who have attended our three workshops below.

Early Years

“In Early Years we can be afraid of delivering technology-based experiences as we fear it’s too advanced or we don’t know the correct language to use. This workshop put it into perspective and inspired me to do more.” 

“I found the workshop really useful; it has refreshed my thoughts on technology and given me such great ideas and resources that I’m sure all the kids will love.” 

Computational Thinking

“Even though the course was online, it was interactive and engaging. I liked that we were asked to do some of the activities that you can do with your pupils as it let me see how easy it can be to develop computational skills within the classroom.” 

“It really made me think and help understand what computational thinking is really about.  The clear cross curricular links and how it is often something we are already doing, just not thought of in that way!” 

Programming in Scratch

“I've tried to have several introductions to Scratch before but this one is the best by far - practical projects, videos were great, delivery was clear and interesting.” 

“Really engaging and fun activities that could be used with children. Also, good for developing staff confidence and subject knowledge.”
