End of Year Quiz 2018

End of Year Quiz 2018

Every year, I keep getting asked if I am creating another quiz because everyone seems to love them. As we finish school on the 22nd of June this year, I have been able to get this one made during times when the kids are involved in end of year activities! I was lucky as it is so time consuming! The music round alone took me 4 hours to create and I was able to do it whilst kids were on a out of school visit! This will fill a full hour including the marking, but you must be tight on timing. I would suggest for each picture in the places round - 10 seconds. For the personalities round 2 minutes and for the wotz dat?? round 3 minutes maximum. The conundrum round should have no more than 10 minutes, but they should be able to do it in 5 as the focus is English punctuation and there are only so many forms of punctuation. The music round takes 15 minutes (video I have created). My quizzes usually prove to be very popular and the kids love them! Enjoy!

Resources for the delivery of  Digital Media CTEC Unit 3

Resources for the delivery of Digital Media CTEC Unit 3

I used this Powerpoint to deliver all of the LOs for unit 3 coursework, using the exam board resources and text book as guidance. I can’t attach all the resources I use to support the students because some are copyrighted. However, pretty much any of those resources can be found online. I have attached extra guidance and resources where possible and a booklet for the students to use for reference and planning. It offers two tasks, which are based on the suggested task from the exam board. They can create a documentary or a DPS. In retrospect, I’d probably ask the students that chose a print based task to also supply a cover page, as the documentary task is way more time consuming. There isn’t any guidance on technical skills, as we complete a skills based unit before starting this, where we introduce them to Indesign and iMovie. The checklist is there for the students to tick off all of the tasks before they finally hand in their folders.
