OK, So we are coming to the end of our first cohort finishing the OCR COmputing GCSE, some sucesses, but overall, not. The other lead teacher for CGSE Computing is now looking at changing the course in order to: A) increase exam results b) Get more interest (year 1 we had 17, this year 11, next year 9) Then, the cambridge nationals came along, with the promise of Microsoft Certification, which may get more students interested and the idea that we can modularise the units to make it more interesting for the kids. I'm scared it may dumb down the subject (which is what i want to get away from) I'm suspicious and reticent. I'm getting my head around the OCR Computing and making it more interesting, however the interest in the school for ICT and computing is low. what do i do? what would you do?
