Data structures and data representation for GCSE computer science CY203


Subject knowledge enhancement for those teaching GCSE computer science, focused on data - its representation, manipulation, storage and uses. The course includes coverage of GCSE-level database models, management systems and queries. This course will provide a range of classroom activities and teaching techniques to improve teaching of this subject area.


You will be able to:

  • develop techniques for effective teaching using binary, denary and hexadecimal data
  • improve understanding of image and audio data, and how it is manipulated and compressed
  • learn the fundamentals of teaching databases
  • recognise how instructions and data are stored and how computers distinguish them


On the day following this course is the one-day course "Teaching data and data structures (A level)" - participants interested in both are welcome to stay overnight with us in York at no extra cost.
