Craig Sargent and David Hillyard are two experienced classroom teachers. Both with a degree in Computer Science, and over 20 years experience teaching in comprehensive secondary schools in England.
Our aim is to help you deliver outstanding computer science lessons by creating the very best resources.
Contemporary, outstanding lessons
Using our workbooks and activities
Gone are the days where it is acceptable to go through a PowerPoint of theory from the front of the class. Using our workbooks and activities to support the videos, students are engaged and learn independently from the very first minute of the lesson.
Our YouTube channel is changing
But don’t panic, we’re just adding more content!
From September we are going to be adding more content to our YouTube channel to support teachers of computer science using our resources. Students will still have access to our flipped classroom videos, but please encourage them to use our student site instead.
We have a video to teach your students the theory for EVERY bullet point of your course specification. These aren’t generic videos, these are EXACTLY matched to the requirements of the course.
We promote a flipped classroom pedagogy where you set the video for students to watch for homework in advance of the lesson. They then come to the lesson with the required knowledge, and you can begin activities immediately without the need for chalk and talk time!
OCR GCSE VIDEOS
Covering every specification point of the OCR J276 GCSE computer science specification.
OCR A’LEVEL VIDEOS
Covering every specification point of the OCR H046 and H446 computer science specifications.
AQA A’LEVEL VIDEOS
Covering every specification point of the AQA 7516 and 7517 computer science specifications.
To support our free videos, we have classroom activities and resources to help you teach every aspect of the specification, each with answers so you don’t have to be an expert!
Follow us on YouTube
Check out our YouTube channel. It is packed full of over 400 videos, all ad free!
As well as videos covering course content we also have videos on teaching pedagogy, exam revision and more…
Road map and what’s coming next
Want to know what we are working on at the moment, and what is in the pipeline? We create new resources for a range of courses every single day. Our road map is a great place to find out if there is something in the works that may be of interest.
We have thought very deeply about how to teach computer science. Find out what we think about homework, challenge, differentiation, starters and programming.
Computer Science in the news
Great for a starter, plenary or alternative activity, these articles provide stimulus material for some great classroom discussions.
In the spring term, as exams approach, Craig’n’Dave can help your students with your revision.
Students can interact with us, ask questions and follow along as we tackle walking-talking mock papers at 7pm live.
