Topic Progress:

We hope you found some interesting ideas that you can use in your teaching and that you’ve enjoyed joining in the conversations.

We’ve been delighted to see ideas tried out in different contexts around the world. Thank you to everyone for sharing. This is without doubt the most valuable part of the course.

Here are some suggestions for possible next steps:

  1. If you post on three of the sections out of four, you can apply for a Technology Outdoors certificate and also get a badge. Please email to let us know you would like a certificate and we’ll send you a PDF certificate.
  2. Continue to join in our community and share ideas. We will make all of this year’s MOOC contents and the community available to anyone who has subscribed. We would love to keep the community alive ready for our STEM to STEAM MOOC next year. You will be automatically enrolled on this course. We will contact you with details closer to the time.
  3. If you would like to complete a more formal qualification, we run a fully online course at the University of Northampton which can be studied at a distance and leads to a Postgraduate Certificate in Primary Computing. This qualification is worth a third of a master’s degree. Find out more here: or email
  4. Choose another educator from the community and suggest that you plan together to connect your classrooms for a collaboration of your own.

We hope to continue talking to you all on the online community and look forward to sharing ideas again within our STEM to STEAM MOOC in May 2018 which will be held on this same site!

All best wishes from the DLaB team
