Computer Science - KEYWORDS TABOO

Computer Science - KEYWORDS TABOO

This is a powerpoint of over 140 keywords for GCSE Computer Science. Mainly for the AQA Specification but could also be used for other exam boards. Free to use by anyone but drop me an email if you do use as it would be noce to know woh has used it. The game is called TABOO. It is where the powerpoint is presented at the front and there is different teams. So you could have 2 teams and each team selects a player. Team one player goes and sits in front of the board, facing away from the board. Then their team has to describe the word that comes up on the board without saying the banned words on the screen or the word it self. The person facing away from the board has to guess what the word is behind them. The team with the most correct answers wins. A time limit is fun to do. An ONLINE version is availble here - https://docs.google.com/presentation/d/1zxMbWVjzyUlaBtMdVNxtoIZaANeIcR23hKEbkWZysIA/edit?usp=sharing
