OCR’s Rob Leeman discusses teaching the new computer science curriculum in Codio’s second ‘Ask the Experts’ video

Codio has released the second in its series of short videos which provide expert comment on the best ways to teach computer science and coding in schools.

Episode Two features Rob Leeman, a former Head of ICT at Swavesey Village College, in Cambridgeshire, and now exam board OCR’s Subject Specialist for Computer Science and ICT.


As one of the writers of the new draft GCSE Computer Science specification, Rob provides top tips for teaching the new GCSE specification and  expert insight into how teachers can deliver the course content in the most engaging and beneficial way. He also talks about the many technology challenges facing Computing teachers and how these can be overcome with cloud-based programming platforms.

Co-founder of Codio Phillip Snalune said “We are very excited to have worked with Rob Leeman and OCR on this video – this is a sign of our commitment to the new curriculum and to enhancing the teaching and learning experience for Computer Science.”

Look out for the next episode in the ‘Ask the Experts’ series where we’ll be focusing on support for teacher training, and professional development opportunities such as the BCS Certificate in Computer Science Teaching.
