"If you are either training to teach or already teaching the secondary computing curriculum, you will need to know what effective teaching of computing actually looks like. This book is for you. Throughout the book, you will discover the insights found and the journey undertaken by the author, as a head of department, as she transformed her department from teaching ICT to teaching computing. This text will not only help you teach computing in a way that places learners at the centre of your planning but also seeks to motivate, engage and inspire them with a love of the subject, show them the opportunities that computing can present them and how computing shapes their daily learning, rest and play. In addition, the text provides practical guidance and insights for those applying for either their first teaching post or seeking advancement as a secondary computing teacher." -- Andrew Csizmadia * Senior Lecturer in Computer Science Education *
