Kate Farrell

Director of Curriculum Development & Professional Learning
University of Edinburgh, Moray House School of Education

I work on the Data Education in Schools project developing a data science curriculum for Primary and Secondary schools in Scotland. I develop and deliver professional learning workshops for teachers in how to deliver data literacy and data science in Primary and Secondary schools. My team and I design activities on data and information handling, then trial them in pilot schools. The activities are on a variety of topics, so that they can fit in to a variety of curricular areas. I also work with the Scottish Qualifications Authority (SQA) developing the national Secondary school qualification in Data Science. Previously I advised on the new Computing Science outcomes in the Scottish Curriculum, wrote a guide for Primary and Early Years on teaching the new CS outcomes (available free at Teach CS.Scot) and developed new badge activities in computational thinking with Girl Guiding.
