Computing - Networks

Computing - Networks

An entire UNIT OF WORK for the new Computing curriculum, looking at: - what networks are, - how they are made, - how the Internet works, - data protection and encryption - and touching on E-Safety. Includes Medium and Short Term Planning, professional PowerPoint presentation for the whole unit, ALL worksheets and EXEMPLAR photographs for ease of understanding. Simple reference system - L1 means Lesson 1, L2 - Lesson 2 etc. ALL necessary worksheets for each lesson are highlighted on the Short Term Planning in Yellow in both the Resources column and when describing the activities. Most worksheets are editable to suit. This has been successfully delivered to Y3, but could it be used for most of KS2 if they have not yet looked at it. Please review and rate.

Assessing Computing in the New Curriculum

Assessing Computing in the New Curriculum

Using stages rather than levels, this is a reference sheet for each year group from 1 to 6 (with each stage being in line with year group expectations). Statements are taken directly from the 2014 Curriculum, split across the stages, with the added bonus of possible examples for each statement. I ran the original version of this in school and found variation among teacher assessments, hence the new addition of examples to support consistency and progress across the school.

Scratch Programming - Computational Thinking Homework 2

Scratch Programming - Computational Thinking Homework 2

Computational Thinking (learning to think in a logical/problem solving way) is the buzz word in the teaching of programming. By teaching students to predict the outcome of small pieces of code they naturally become better at building their own programs. Although this homework uses Scratch program code, the code is simply a vehicle to ask the questions and the homework may be used with students who have never seen Scratch. Permission has been granted by the Scratch team to uses images of Scratch code. Have fun. My students loved these! Previously downloaded 30,000 times on a few websites comments have included: "Thanks, these look like really good examples and introduce code in a fun and engaging way." "Very useful. I'll use for a Maths class as well." "Great examples to understand code. Thank you for sharing it."

Introduction to Dreamweaver

Introduction to Dreamweaver

I wrote these worksheets for a Year 11 Level Three course in Web Design using Dreamweaver CS and took it down to year 9, which worked just as well. It is designed to last around five sessions however you may like to break it down or use it as you wish. it is for use with Dreamweaver CS.

Python Programming - Computational Thinking Homework 1 (Strings)

Python Programming - Computational Thinking Homework 1 (Strings)

(Greg Reid has written two Computing text books for the Scottish education system. His resources are used in thousands of schools all over the world.) Computational Thinking (learning to think in a logical/problem solving way) is the buzz word in the teaching of programming. By teaching students to predict the outcome of small pieces of code they naturally become better at building their own programs. This homework is based around the programming language Python (version 3). Students are given small pieces of code and asked to predict the output when certain inputs are entered. Python is an open source programming language. It’s use is not subject to Copyright. Have fun. My students loved these! Previously downloaded 30,000 times on a few websites comments have included: "Thanks, these look like really good examples and introduce code in a fun and engaging way." "Very useful. I'll use for a Maths class as well." "Great examples to understand code. Thank you for sharing it."

17 3D Computer Graphics Images PowerPoint Presentation, Creative Thinking Workbook And Lesson Plan

17 3D Computer Graphics Images PowerPoint Presentation, Creative Thinking Workbook And Lesson Plan

Are you teaching your students about digital art or how to create 3D computer graphic images? Are you looking for some inspiring examples to share with your class? This pack contains a 31 Teaching Activity Teacher Guide. These activities are quick and fun to do and will improve both your students' memory and vocabulary skills. Quickly watch the computer presentation for the first time. Discuss the first questions in the workbook. Get the students to quickly express their opinions on the images and draw their favourite image. Look again at the presentation and try to see how many of the words listed in the vocabulary page could be used to describe each image. Then ask them to imagine they need to write a short movie using some of the images from the presentation. How would they link these images into a coherent story? The remainder of the lesson is used to expand their creative and thinking sides and think about how 3D computer graphics may impact them now and into the future. You could print off and laminate the photos to make an interesting, eye-catching display about 3D computer graphics images. The students could also take the laminated photos and sort them into different types of 3D computer graphics images. The students can then discuss how they think they were made. The photos could also be used as prompts for creative writing, factual writing or descriptive writing.
