You invest in us and we invest in you.
The Jam Coding Landscape
There is currently a huge disparity across schools in the level of confidence that children have on computers.
“The current delivery of Computing education in many UK schools is highly unsatisfactory… many pupils are not inspired by what they are taught and gain nothing beyond basic digital literacy skills such as how to use a word-processor or a database” – The Royal Society, 2017
The Royal Society puts this lacklustre performance down to the broad interpretation of the current curriculum, taught by non-specialist teachers. They also state that there is a shortage of teachers who are able to teach beyond basic digital literacy.
The simple fact of the matter is teachers in Primary Education are focused on English and Maths and then tasked with teaching many other subjects. Computing is a specialism, it cannot be taught verbatim from a text book. Children need to see and engage with the outcomes of their coding experiences. This is the workshops that Jam Coding offer.
