Presented by: Conor Power
Two years ago, Coláiste Chiaráin was chosen to pilot the new Junior Certificate. As part of the programme I developed a short course in computer science. In this presentation I will be discussing how the course was practically implemented, the kind of activities engaged in and the resources used. I will be discussing feedback from parents and students on the course.
