123ICT Competitions for 2014-15

Posted by:

enter_to_win123ICT Competitions for 2014-15!  We are really pleased to announce our new schedule of competitions for this academic year.  You will notice that we have included some competitions favourites from last year, as well as introducing some fresh new ideas. The first competition is one that I find particularly exciting as it involves both Key Stage One and Key Stage Two children working together to produce a floor robot programming video. This will not only present both key stages with individual challenges, it will also provide the opportunity for them to collaborate across the key stages and promote inter-school teamwork.

As usual, full details, including the entry requirements and submission deadlines for each competition will be made available on our website (2014-15 Competitions Page). In addition, we will of course, send the details directly to all our schools by e-mail, well in advance of the individual competitions.

We were really delighted by the high number and the superb quality of the submissions we received for last year’s competitions and are hopeful that this year they will prove to be equally popular. We wish all entrants good luck and hope that they will enjoy taking part in our competitions.
