A drop-in-when-you-can Turtlestitching workshop from 10:00 to 17:00 this Thursday 19 October in room 0.11 in the Lloyd Institute at TCD. Turtlestitch is a jigsaw-programming environment for creating embroideries from code. Bring your brain, a laptop or tablet, something material you’d like to embroider on, and you can use my programmable embroidery machine to stitch your own design. I have thread in primary colours, metallic, luminous and conducting (bring your own LEDs / batteries). Halloween themes may be creatively fruitful! ‘something you’d like to embroider on’ could mean anything from a small square to a t-shirt or hoody. I’d humbly suggest not something too precious in case it all goes wrong. There is no set start or stop time, but just to make some kind of order out of chaos, I’ll do an introduction on the hour, starting at 11:00 (assuming anyone turns up!). If you’d like to start now: www.turtlestitch.org And no need to RSVP, but let me know if you are coming!

Teaching & Leading KS2 Computing - Module 2

Wed, Dec 2, 2020 2:00 PM

This CPD follows on from the first module to fully cover the KS2 computing curriculum. Skillfully combining a wide range of software applications and multimedia such as video, images and sound, you will be better able to support children in creative and engaging project work across the whole primary curriculum. They will develop their abiility to select the right tool for the job, then use them in a considered, effective way. This will lead towards a project combining a range of skills based on collecting, analyising and presenting data. This maps closely to expectations of the maths curriculum. Session 1: 2nd December 2020 - 14:00 - 15:00 Session 2: 15th December 2020 - 14:00 - 15:00
