CCEA encourages Digital Skills Teachers to contribute to MICRO:BIT UK primary school research project

Published: 01/10/2021, 4:30pm

Micro:bit Educational Research recently launched a survey for primary school (KS2) teachers to have their say on their experiences teaching digital skills. They are seeking to recruit teachers who are willing to take part in a series of short online surveys during October 2021, December 2022 and June 2023.

To help ensure the voices of primary school teachers in Northern Ireland can be heard CCEA is encouraging primary school teachers who teach digital skills to get involved.

CCEA Interim Chief Executive, Margaret Farragher said:

This is great opportunity to provide feedback that will improve support for teachers delivering digital skills. It is important that the views of teachers from across Northern Ireland contribute to Micro:bit Educational resources, which will continue to help children thrive in learning the benefits of computational thinking.

The surveys will help inform a programme of activity to support UK primary school teachers teaching digital skills, including free CPD and classroom resources. Teachers who take part will be entered into a prize draw with multiple prizes of £50 and £100 and a top prize of £500!
