    Hi,
    I've recently taken over the ICT/Computing department in a school that runs Year 5 -Year 11, and I'm fortunate enough that the previous head barely spent any of 2019-2020 budget... I now have 2 weeks to spend it. I should also mention that I'm a Maths specialist so haven't yet made all the professional links to the Computing side of teaching IT/Computing yet, and any suggestions about the best blogs, resources etc would be gratefully received.

    After textbooks and headphones, I still have a fair amount left and was hoping to get a 3D printer, as we do some Sketchup and I'd love to be able to print some stuff out. Does anyone have any recommendations or ones to avoid?

    Honestly, I'm feeling a little overwhelmed about how to spend this before it goes down the toilet in June... without time to redesign the curriculum yet, I'm not 100% sure what I'll want or need.#

    I imagine all this has been posted before, but the most recent I could find was a few years old...

    Thank you

    Dear Ms L Page,
    As a computer science teacher you should know better than post a personal email address in a public forum.

    Dear Moscowbore,

    Clearly it’s an email address linked to no personal account/anything important.

    I found you, your school, your instagram pictures and your schemes of work in 2 google searches.

    Up to you.

    It's people like you we need to be careful of! ;)

    That was a joke.
