IT co-ordinators meet

IT co-ordinators from Archbishop Sumner, Jessop and St Saviour’s met last night for a session facilitated by London CLC, to look at ways of assessing children’s progress in the new Computing curriculum and different ways of gathering evidence. This will be the first of 3 meetings supported by CLC. The group discussed the challenge of setting assessment targets in this ever changing and progressing subject area. CLC introduced the group to Creative Commons, a way for teachers and pupils to share their work publicly for free whilst having it acknowledged. They also looked at the lgfl tools available to support class blogging and ways in which blogging can be used as a child’s e-portfolio, to give a purpose for blogging. We look forward to the next meeting when teachers will look at the Computer Science aspect of the curriculum for all groups in more depth and work together on assessment.
