Toolkit

JamPackedUK provides a toolkit of resources to support the development of outstanding teachers of Computing. The JamPackedUK toolkit includes lesson plans, video recordings of webinars as well as links to external individuals and organisations that all help inspire & engage learners.

This list of resources will be updated regularly as content grows.

Free #TeachComputing Webinars:

A series of online webinars were recorded for teachers, each lasting around one hour. While links to the full recordings are listed here, it is recommended that teachers access the notes first as these contain links to relevant parts of the video recordings and associated resources allowing teachers to go straight to the most relevant content without needing to view the full recording. 

The webinars were originally intended to focus on the pedagogy of teaching computing to teach computing to inspire and engage learners. However, in response to requests from teachers they regularly focus on more practical issues for example; assessing progress without levels, teaching text-based programming and teaching the theoretical parts of GCSE Computing.
