Calling Eastbourne teachers!

Are you ready for the new computer science curriculum for primary and secondary schools in September 2014?

Can you confidently encourage your students to use their computer programming skills for creative ends?

If you’re an Eastbourne based teacher, please come along to our half day computing training course to achieve two goals:

  • develop your technical skills in programming
  • give you some insight into the requirements in the new computer science curriculum

We’ll provide a half day supply cover and computing subject knowledge training for a small commitment fee of £30.

This is a joint project between the ArtsWork funded Creative Computing project, TechResort and the Computing School at the University of Brighton.

What’s happening

Come along to Eastbourne’s Towner Gallery on 9th May and we’ll introduce you to creative problem solving and developing web and mobile applications using the JavaScript programming language.
