Code Week

Primary coding!

During EU CodeWeek, CCEA visited St Peter's and St Paul's Primary School in Foreglen to experience a number of coding activities using a variety of software, hardware and programmable devices.

In this short video, Principal Michael O’Kane shares how he is developing coding through the school; where this fits in within the Northern Ireland Curriculum and the benefits and learning opportunities it presents for his pupils.

Support videos for the new GCE Digital Technology

Part of the revision of the Legacy GCE ICT specification was to add more computational thinking to the new GCE Digital Technology specification.

In Unit AS 1: Approaches to Systems Development, there are learning outcomes assigned to a section entitled ‘Programming’ where students are required to demonstrate their knowledge in order to describe the fundamental programming concepts of sequence, selection and iteration, including count-controlled and condition-controlled loops.

EU Code Week is celebrating it’s 5th birthday

EU Code Week is celebrating its 5th birthday on 7-22 October 2017. We’re encouraging schools to create an app, a game, a website, make an interactive story or make a robot move.

Throughout the two weeks of EU Code Week, CCEA will be signposting you to some free resources and showing you how coding can fit into the Northern Ireland Curriculum.
