Meet the team at Bett 2016!
A-Level Wikibook Hack Event
We are looking to update the A-Level Computing Wikibook to match the new 2015 specifications (AQA focus with significant OCR overlap). Wikibooks has been a huge success over the last 6 years, supporting thousands of students with their studies through an online, democratic and free resource. Updating this resource for the new courses will help thousands more students with their studies, give teachers the support they need to deliver complicated topics, and create a hub of free resources that can be adapted to all exam boards and down into the GCSE Computing qualification.
If you’d like to be involved with this CAS#include Hack the curriculum event, we are looking for 5-10 authors to come together in March 2016 for a weekend at:
Cisco Hub Rooms,
Birmingham City University,
B4 7AP (map)
March 5-6th (Sat & Sun 9am-6pm)
Ideally you will have experience of teaching at A-level, but a keen and knowledgeable interest in the new curriculum and the ability to write student level resources will be fine. A brief overview of the new curriculum is here.
Full funding is available for food, accommodation and transport from all parts of the country (courtesy of the University of Roehampton’s Google CS4HS funding).
If you’re interested, please contact us or email the organizer (Peter Kemp) directly.
