Computing and Technology Conference Summer 2016

Our highly popular, bi-annual, Computing and technologies conference will be held next Wednesday 15th June 9am – 3.15pm, here at London CLC. These conferences are aimed at Computing/Technology subject leaders, heads of department and teachers interested in the use of technologies across the curriculum. The conference will include keynote speakers, policy and curriculum updates, practical sessions and opportunities to learn from other schools.

We have a number of places still available and can offer free places to our SLA schools and those who have not yet attended CLC CPD. To book click here or email

Here is a little rundown of the workshops on offer – inspiration, ideas and fun promised!

Virtual worlds: Find out how a selection of free Android phone apps, together with a cheap and cheerful headset, can turn a simple cardboard box into a virtual reality experience.

Robot arm: Combine programming and electronics to learn how to control a robotic device, which will be available to SLA schools through their loan entitlement next year.

Microbit Maker: This maker session will allow participants to use their craft skills, turning a selection of cardboard junk into a musical instrument. They’ll also get to grips with the micro: bit, a new electronic device being given to every year 7 child in the country as part of the BBC’s Make It Digital initiative.

Sonic Pi: In this session participants will learn how to apply the key concepts of text-based programming to the composition of electronic music.

Lego Wedo: The Wedo 2.0 is a brand Lego Education kit which can be used to build or invent a huge range of moving models. They can then be controlled and programmed via Bluetooth through the accompanying iPad app.

Gravity sketch: This free design app, conceived by Innovation Design Engineering students of the Royal College of Art, uses a range of tactile, intuitive tools to make detailed 3d modeling accessible to a wider audience.
