Technocamps Teachers Conference 2016
Celebrate, Collaborate, Code


Thursday 3rd March 2016 


5pm - 10pm


Liberty Stadium, Swansea


 


Technocamps is hosting its Annual Teachers Conference on Thursday 3rd March 2016 at the Liberty Stadium, Swansea.


Following the success of previous years conferences, we once again would like to invite all educators from across Wales who are passionate about inspiring their students to develop their computing skills to join us to: celebrate the work of the Technocamps Learning in Digital Wales project over the last 18 months, to collaborate with fellow educators, and discuss the future of teaching and promotions of computer science across Wales!


Computer science and coding continues to be centre focus of curriculum development across Wales particularly following the 'Successful Futures' review by Professor Graham Donaldson. Following the recommendations to develop a 'digital competence framework' we look to discuss the benefits and changes ahead. The evening will consist of a 3-course dinner with a range of speakers spanning the education sector in Wales to discuss their experiences (and difficulties) of teaching coding as well as information about the future of the Technocamps programme.
