CPD Events Calendar

“You don’t need glossy textbooks, iPads or a class set of Raspberry Pi computers to be an effective teacher. The best resource you have available is you. Invest as much as you can in your own development and your pupils will reap the rewards.” Alan O’Donohoe

Attending a high quality professional development course has the greatest potential to affect the quality of experience for your learners, not the amount of money that you spend on learning resources.

Consistent, outstanding feedback from participants on my courses is proof of the quality of the training. If you attend one of my courses, you won’t just learn what to teach, I’ll help you develop your confidence and model a range of predagogical approaches that help you consider how to teach computing in a way that will engage and inspire your classes.

Specific Requests: If you want to approach me to discuss customised face-to-face training, consultancy, conference workshops or online training, you can contact me via my profile page here or through twitter @teknoteacher.

You can now get a £30 discount on my [Dragonfly Computing] courses with the code DFT.AOD16

    Any chance you could promote my online course – a free introduction to the primary programmes of study? This explains core concepts many secondary teachers also need to become familiar with, defining all vocabulary and explaining all concepts in plain english..

    If you have any time, look at the learning platform I have built – I would love to have your courses on there too.
