Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) and Arm School Program (ASP) are collaborating on a series of webinars on the theme of Teaching with Physical Computing.
The aim of the webinars is to help you engage and enthuse your learners in Computer Science. Combining the use of Physical Computing with Project-Based Learning, delivered in carefully-planned lessons, your learners can experience Computer Science as a creative subject where technical skills are developed in tandem with employability skills, such as problem-solving and team work. There are many different aspects to achieving this effectively and this webinar series will help you with everything from taking your first steps in Physical Computing to effectively assessing Project-Based Learning and delivering exciting maker-events in your school. Details of each webinar are provided in the table below.
After each webinar you can explore the themes covered in greater depth by following Arm School Program’s free-to-access courses on EdX.
Computer Science teachers with some familiarity with physical computing devices – such as micro: bits, Raspberry Pi devices or Arduino.
Before joining the session, we recommend that all participants enroll free-of-charge on to each course in our EdX program, Teaching with Physical Computing. For free access, visit each course page and, after clicking 'Enroll', choose 'Access this course: FREE’.
Our EdX program sets you on the path to becoming an expert with practical computing, and helps you understand the importance of Project-Based Learning. Whether you are new to teaching Computing, a specialist Computer Science teacher, or you want to learn more about physical computing. Each course is about 10-12 hours of learning, which you can do over a few days, a week, or 10 weeks – whatever works best for you. The courses also work independently of each other, so you can pick and choose the courses that best suit your needs.
Computing has transformed society in innumerable exciting ways. Part of our mission is to work with teachers and educational experts like you to spark learners’ interest and engagement in the subject.
The Arm School Program (ASP) is part of the Education team at Arm, the world’s leading semiconductor IP company. Arm’s technology is in billions of devices – from supercomputers, mobile phones, and cars to small computers from partners such as micro:bit, Raspberry Pi, and Arduino.
If you are interested in improving your learners’ engagement in Computing, we can help you.
Project-Based Learning (PBL) combined with Physical Computing offers a way for learners to experience the thrill of innovating. Learners also gain and practice the skills and knowledge they must know in a relevant, practical, and engaging context.
If you would like to learn how to deliver PBL effectively, we offer a range of free-to-access professional development courses and structured teaching & learning materials. These courses and materials support you from beginner to experienced PBL practitioner:
