CBSE LATEST CIRCULAR: The aim of the CBSE ARM webinars is to help you engage and enthuse your learners in Computer Science. Combining the use of Physical Computing with Project-Based Learning, delivered in carefully-planned lessons, your learners can experience Computer Science as a creative subject where technical skills are developed in tandem with employability skills, such as problem-solving and teamwork.

There are many different aspects to achieving this effectively and this webinar series will help you with everything from taking your first steps in Physical Computing to effectively assessing Project-Based Learning and delivering exciting maker-events in your school. Details of each webinar are provided in the table below. (Source: ARM)
