Computing is a new subject area on the national curriculum. It is also a part of the English Baccalaureate (EBacc) which is a school performance measure. It is the role of the Computer Science Teacher to not only understand this subject inside out and teach it, but also to influence their pupils perceptions of computing and how it will shape their futures. This book explores the role of Computer Science Teacher in a secondary school environment. An overview of secondary school computing, what the role encompasses, the attributes, knowledge and skills required to be a success and useful tools, methods and techniques are covered, along with case studies and quotes from schools and current teachers. Support material including a self assessment grid and lesson plan template is also included.
