King’s Ely teamed up with Intel and the Tablet Academy to host a free workshop for teachers and students to explore computing using Intel powered mobile devices as a tool to facilitate learning in a fun and engaging way.

Activities covered a range of computing activities, including programming a games controller, measuring objects using the tablet camera and programming a robot around an obstacle course.

Head of ICT and Computing at King’s Ely Junior, Nigel Ovens, said: “The students enjoyed trying all the different options on display and they were focused and truly absorbed in each of the activities.”

Marc Hawes, Senior’s Head of ICT, added: “It was wonderful to see how engaged the pupils were in the activities, which demonstrated programming is not only confined to the desktop.”
