Unpack the links between Computational Thinking and Designing and Developing Digital Outcomes in our 21st Century Education Landscape.

Demystify the what and how of DT/HM and unpack where Computational thinking converges with Designing and developing digital outcomes and IoT.

Bits and Bytes

  • Develop your Digital and computational thinking capabilities through a hands on discovery and exploration session
  • Investigate the use of everyday things which can be used to help you integrate computational thinking into your classroom teaching and learning programme
  • Build a basis for teaching to support the progress outcomes in CT and DDO for digital technologies
  • Explore the 21st Century skill of Real World Problem Solving through prototyping and electronics.


  • Finish with a Megabyte session. Dive deeper into CT or DDO by backward mapping a PO to understand the building blocks and foundational skills/strategies of a progress outcome.
