ConquerComputing.com transforms teaching of Computing in schools

06-03-2017

The team of educational experts behind ConquerMaths.com, who specialise in bespoke online maths tuition to learners of all ages, are launching their new product ConquerComputing.com at the Education Show in Birmingham next month.

ConquerComputing is a new online resource developed specifically to aid the teaching of computing in schools with primary teachers in mind. It provides teachers of any level of experience all the tools they need to effectively deliver the curriculum, including lesson plans, videos for learners, videos for teachers, worksheets and downloads. Potentially complex concepts are handled in an easy to understand, step-by-step manner.


The launch of ConquerComputing is timely since it reflects changes to the UK national curriculum brought about in 2014 which stipulates requirements for computing and especially coding to be taught in schools from an early age, replacing ICT.  This curriculum change presents problems for most teachers whose computing knowledge is limited to switching on a PC, sending emails and creating documents. ConquerComputing thus provides the go-to platform for primary teachers faced with the potentially daunting prospect of teaching computing in schools.
 

A survey (by Mykindacrowd) found that 54% of secondary teachers believed their students knew more about computing than they did. Teachers said they needed the support of government and business if they are to deliver the curriculum. In addition, 74% of teachers admitted to not having the right skills or time required to deliver the Computing Curriculum.


ConquerComputing provides the answer to these problems, bridging the gap in teachers’ knowledge, providing a holistic, easy-to-use and cost effective approach to the teaching of Computing in schools from an early age
