• Provide insight and examples of the best current practice relating to the teaching of Computing since the scrapping of the old ICT curriculum
• Enable teachers to meet a range of Computing practitioners and experts, helping schools to make important contacts
• Enable teachers to experience different kinds of technical kit that can be used in the classroom, talking directly to practitioners who can advise on using the kit, working with computer code (for example Python or using Scratch)
• Learn about organisations represented including, NESTA, YoHa, Open Data Association

During the morning session participants will hear a series of short inspirational speeches lead and introduced by Stephen Heppell, all relating to the developing professional development in Computing and inspiring pupils in the classroom at Key Stages 1, 2, 3 and 4.
