Brendan Kenny


Head of Computing in an independent boys school


Brendan’s talk today will explore the excellent online resource,’s Code Studio. This talk will show how this platform could be exactly what is needed by the many teachers who do not feel confident about teaching the new curriculum in KS1 and KS2, including it’s ability to track pupil’s progress as well as it’s potential to facilitate a flipped-classroom model and promote independent learning.
