A comprehensive unit of work covering operating systems, interfaces, accessibility, and an introduction to utility software. Ideally suited to Year 8, but with enough stretch and challenge activities for Year 9. I have also taught this module to Year 7 with some work removed.

The focus on operating systems feeds into J277 GCSE Computer Science; the interface aspects feed into BTEC Level 1/Level 2 Tech Award in Digital Information Technology.

This unit of work comprises:

Lesson 1: OS Functions
PowerPoint: Introduction to different operating systems and their primary functions
Worksheet and answer sheet

Lesson 2: OS Types
PowerPoint: More in-depth look at operating system functions and the difference between different operating systems.
Worksheet and answer sheet

Lesson 3: User Interfaces
PowerPoint: Command Line Interfaces, Graphical User Interfaces (WIMP and Touch-based)
Worksheet and answer sheet

Lesson 4: Accessibility and Design
PowerPoint: How users with different abilities can use computers and the evolution of the interface
Worksheet and answer sheet

Lesson 5: Utility Software
PowerPoint: Introduction to utility software; introduction to compression and defragmentation
Worksheet and answer sheet
Online defragmentation activity

Lesson 6: Recap and Quiz
PowerPoint: Recap of unit and link to Quizizz activity

This unit has been professionally designed (I’m an ex-graphic designer) and is suitable for delivery by subject and non-subject specialist teachers.
