IGCSE Computer Science Exam Question Finder

IGCSE Computer Science Exam Question Finder

This is a work-in-progress I would appreciate feedback and suggestions for further development to make it as useful for CS teachers as possible. Intended for: TEACHERS of IGCSE Cambridge Computer Science Purpose: You want to quickly gather a set of past exam paper questions on the topic you’ve been teaching in IGCSE Computer Science. But there are so many past papers and you have to look through each one to decide which questions are appropriate. With this (unfinished as yet!) tool, you can select your syllabus topic and you’ll see which papers and question numbers you need to assign to students.

E-safety Scheme of Work: Year 1 - 6

E-safety Scheme of Work: Year 1 - 6

This scheme of work is made up by providing links to other free resources available on the internet. These include Google Be Internet Awesome and Digital Literacy curriculum, SWGfL, ThinkUKnow. IMPORTANT: I am in no way trying to pass these off as my own work, merely putting links to them all in one place and creating a SoW out of them with progression through year groups and learning objectives. I intend to put together a complete Scheme of Work, including E-safety, Digital Literacy and Coding, created from other free resources in the next few months. I wish to thank the creators of these resources and I am glad I am able to present them for your use. Jody Carter @codeyjody

J276 - Computer Science GCSE - Revision Question Cards

J276 - Computer Science GCSE - Revision Question Cards

I have created question cards for all topics in the OCR Computer Science GCSE (J276). These were used by my Year 11 Cohort, they have found them quite effective as support tools in lessons and revision at home. They work great for testing students knowledge after delivering a topic as well as extending questioning individually in lessons. I have created wall display that has each Topic Easy, Medium and Hard. This allows students to collect a question card to further their learning whenever they want too. I have used Blooms style questioning allowing for the testing of knowledge, application of knowledge and then applying it further. I have named these ‘Attained it…’, ‘Applied it…’ and ‘Advanced it…’ respectively. All the cards have been designed to be printed double sided on the short edge, This is so that the topic name is on the back. All cards are using the ‘OpenDyslexic’ font, this can be seen on the PDF’s. Formatting may differ on the publisher document if you do not have the font installed. This pack consists of the original publisher file’s as well as PDFs of all the cards too. I have also created a PDF of each set of cards that represent each separate paper of the OCR course, as well as one for all topics across the course. The content does not differ from the collective one to the individual in any way. Enjoy!

Computer Viruses - What are they?

Computer Viruses - What are they?

I created a lesson on how computer viruses work with a worksheet to assess students learning. This lesson is aimed for students who are new to this topic. By the end of the lesson students can : Identify the features of a computer virus. Compare the different viruses and how they are used to damage computer systems. Find suitable software to keep their computer free from viruses. The lesson was delivered to 16 to 19 year olds who had not done ICT since year 9. It was part of an ICT Functional skills course This can easily be adapted to teach to KS2 or KS3.
