Welcome to my blog!
Welcome to my first blog post on robbotresources.com!
I can’t tell you how excited I am to be here writing my first blog post! Creating my own website has been something I have had in the pipeline for well over a year now, and what a busy year its been! Since making my teaching resources available online back in March 2017, I now have shops on TES, Teachers Pay Teachers and my own website!
I can remember when I shared my first resources, wondering what the public reaction would be to them. It is always a daunting prospect when you put yourself out there in the world, but I was overwhelmed by the positive comments and feedback I have received! It has always been this feedback which has driven me to create teaching resources to the highest quality.
So what am I going to blog about? My aim for this blog is to promote all areas of Computer Science, Computational Thinking and Digital Competence. I am really passionate about promoting Computer Science to people with little or no background in the field, and in sharing “unplugged” computing lessons (teaching the concepts of Computer Science without the use of computers).
I have written guest blog posts for websites such as TES in the past, particularly around the promotion of Computational Thinking. This is an area I am really passionate about promoting as I believe, within modern society, it is one of the most important skills we can teach children today. It allows them to develop rationale, logical decision making and problem solving skills. It is also not confined to computer science. It is a cross curricular skill which can be applied to problems faced in all subjects… and real life! Check out my subject specific posters for more information (free when you subscribe to my newsletter).
I also want to use this to promote others who I think are doing a great job of promoting education, particularly around computer science and computational thinking. So, watch this space! I could be promoting you soon!
