Barefoot website and signing up for free. Once you’ve signed up, a free online CPD workshop, led by a trained industry volunteer, is the perfect way to get started and will give you and your colleagues a hands-on introduction to what Barefoot has to offer. Choose between Computational Thinking, Early Years or Programming in Scratch.
Barefoot workshops instantly bring the resources to life in an interactive session, demonstrating just how uncomplicated bringing computing to all aspects of the curriculum can be. Our trained Barefoot volunteers host free 90 minute online sessions, provide an introduction to the Barefoot website and resources, discuss how the resources complement the computing curriculum and then demonstrate a range of the activities.
The exemplar Barefoot primary computing resources have been created by a panel of expert primary computing teachers. These free to use, creative resources illustrate how computing can be integrated into the primary curriculum in cross-curricular ways, enabling primary teachers to deliver the computing curriculum with confidence.
Help to support Barefoot by raising awareness of our programme in your own community and networks.
