How to Teach Computing: An Introduction to Concepts, Tools and Resources for Secondary Teachers (European Schoolnet)
Technology is everywhere, if we like it or not. And nearly all future jobs require us to understand it. To respond to this, governments are including computing in national curricula, as a subject taught at all ages but also as part of other subjects. This means the responsibility is on to us, the teachers, because we need to teach it. We will be exploring the ideas, concepts, processes and skills that are important in computing and then introduce you to the tools, resources and lesson activities that can help you teach these concepts and processes in the classroom.

The course consists of six modules:

Module 1: Why teach computing at school?

Module 2: What are we teaching?

Module 3: How to teach Computing? Using visual programming tools

Module 4: How to teach Computing? Using design tools

Module 5: How to teach Computing? Creating for the web and mobile

Module 6: Final Project: Designing a Learning Story for your Classroom

The course is aimed at secondary school teachers but is open to anybody interested in the topic. While some of the activities presented in the course are more relevant for Computer Science teachers, the course is aimed at teachers from any subject.
