Implementation of Curriculum for Excellence and the development of new National Qualifications in Scotland have presented a timely opportunity to revise the way Computing Science is taught in schools and provide a more interesting, up-to-date and engaging experience for both teachers and learners.
This resource will provide an introduction to computer science and basic Computing concepts and give students a grounding in computer programming.
This resource will explore further Computing concepts, with a focus on abstraction, modularity and hierarchy within programming.
This resource seeks to consolidate previous concepts through the medium of mobile app development. In addition to providing a course in programming for mobile devices, it will explore new paradigms in Computing e.g. mobile technologies and new interfaces, and provide ample opportunity for inter-disciplinary linkage.
