Application of Computational Thinking - Create an Interactive Story

Application of Computational Thinking - Create an Interactive Story

This unit of work introduces students (I use this with year 7) to the concepts of computational thinking and logical thinking. It is split into three fully differentiated sections: 1. Design an interactive story using a flowchart to identify the key decision points within your story. 2. Create an interactive story using PowerPoint, hyperlinking the slides to the correct locations. 3. Test and evaluate your story and make improvements where required. I have included some slides to provide additional assistance, for example hyperlinking auto shapes, removing the on mouse click advancements, etc. Alongside developing computational thinking skills, this unit is also an opportunity for students to develop their graphic design skills. I have also included an example interactive story so students can get an idea of what they could create themselves, while considering what they could make even better themselves. This resource is a perfect continuation from my Introduction Computational Thinking for KS3 resource! ***Please Leave a Review***

Beginners while loop plenaries / starters

Beginners while loop plenaries / starters

There are enough here to attach to a whole harm term of work (7 activities with solutions). The activities can either be used as a warm up starter, a recall to retain, or a plenary to check understanding. The activities are all different, and have things like spot the errors, true false, cloze sentences, amongst other things. Very engaging, and they bring real life situations to what can be quite a dry subject. I hope your learners are enthused with these activities as mine have been.

Engaging two or three week Python project for beginners / intermediate / competent users

Engaging two or three week Python project for beginners / intermediate / competent users

Fabulous presentation for a 2 or 3 week Python project. The idea is that they use IF to make a multiple choice quiz (code examples given). Learners are immediately engaged by following a flow chart, and describing what the diagram does. They then have to alter some pseudocode to come up with the first question for their quiz, using IF a,b,c,d etc. The coding ramps up with scoring, and using ELIF. More competent users are challenged to use a main menu, with sub routines so the end user can choose which quiz they would like to do. Then super human coders can learn how to read and write text files to record the leaderboard. To do this, they must look at the coding for Edexcel Fixture NEA from 2017 (please email me for the files if you don't have them (annemariebradshaw@Hotmail.com). There is also a link to a great independent learning site for Python skills. The presentation includes LO, outcomes, 2 extended learning (hwk) tasks, peer assessment with the focus given on a worksheet, and practice debugging with a sabotage task (which really gets them digging into the code in the most devious of ways :-). Fabulous differentiation got these lessons 'outstanding' on a LW and LO. Feedback from the kids was that they loved working at their own pace, and developing something personal to them. Great stuff!

Teaching Python Coding: An Exercise for GCSE Computer Science coursework preparation-Answers

Teaching Python Coding: An Exercise for GCSE Computer Science coursework preparation-Answers

This Power Point supports students preparing for GCSE computer science, using python code for notorious game rock paper scissors. Students are expected to examine the code by identifying variables, explaining the coding keywords, structure and approach. In addition, students are given the opportunity to test the code and come up with suggestions for improving the design. Solutions to all questions provided.
