Microsoft Partners In Learning

ComputerXplorers is part of the world’s largest franchised network providing fun and engaging quality technology education for children.

ComputerXplorers operates all across the UK.

Former Education Secretary Michael Gove introduced a new computing curriculum for primary age children which presented a big challenge for schools.

LJPR devised the concept of a Programming for Primaries awareness week where ComputerXplorers teachers could deliver coding and programming workshops for children, and CPD sessions for teachers to give them a head start on the new curriculum. The awareness week also encouraged other like-minded organisations and companies to realise the importance of technology based learning and how expansive this industry is becoming.

Department For Education

We are working in collaboration with a significant range of local authorities on behalf of the Department for Education to create a highly enriching programme of activities and events. These range from robotics to designing our own computer games, stop motion animation, to creating our own mobile apps. It also includes events where the whole family can get involved as these will be delivered online and virtually.

Some exciting news to share from ComputerXplorers HQ, we have just partnered with AppShed to launch our CXA App Academy.  

Aiming to inspire the next generation of app developers, the new bespoke eight-week program teaches students how to build their own apps, covering everything from graphic design, user interface design, to coding.  

The lessons can be delivered as PPA cover, after school clubs, summer holiday camps and more, with everything taught geared towards the national curriculums in England, Scotland, and Wales.  

What’s more, the package includes a free annual license to AppShed , which would normally cost up to £380 per year. 

We are delighted to partner with 2Simple to use Purple Mash and Python in Pieces to support our offerings with schools.

Purple Mash

Purple Mash is a whole curricular resource that supports teachers with challenging subject areas or topics. Included in every subscription are tools, games, and activities, all of which are engaging for children covering all subject areas. Used in over 7,500 schools worldwide, there’s something for every learner and teacher.

 

Python in Pieces

When translating from block to code just isn’t powerful enough; Python in Pieces can seamlessly translate Python code to block coding. It is designed to transition students from block code, taught in primary schools, to text-based coding taught in secondary schools. Complete with activities and resources, this challenging, interactive environment allows students to learn the coding language of Python whilst enabling both specialist and non-specialist teachers to teach the computing curriculum with confidence.
