Win A Robot World Cup Football Drawing Competition

Win A Robot World Cup Football Drawing Competition

Last week I found a small UK tech company which was giving out great computer prizes and no-one was entering them. I decided to use them to create a drawing competition in my class - after all what is more motivational to a class than a great chance of winning! I used it to share ideas about what makes a great invention. We discussed ideas of what would or would not win - then created our work of art. INVENT THE 2098 WORLD CUP Future Inventors, we have a new challenge for this week. The World Cup is about to start and it got us thinking: what will the 2098 World Cup look like? Flying referees? Virtual stadiums? Techno-vuvuzelas? Submit your ideas and the winner gets a FREE kit and see it become a project on Club Make! We accept ALL ideas: practical, fun to absolutely bonkers. Entering the challenge is super easy: just draw your idea and share it below! They accept submissions until the 24th of June at http://bit.ly/WinARobot.

[GCSE + IGCSE] The Bigger Picture (Emerging trends, issues and impact)

[GCSE + IGCSE] The Bigger Picture (Emerging trends, issues and impact)

This is my unit of work to introduce the majority of the Bigger Picture unit. It also is a good research and discussion activity that links to other areas of the course - networking for example and the Internet of Things which has been in several exemplar question papers. It also gives rise to discuss Embedded Systems, discussions covering the whole of Topic 5 and making it relevant to real world examples. I have included in the file my overview of the three lessons that I spend on this. Of the four subsection of Unit 6. It has activities that can be used to introduce, or recover 6.1.1 - 6.1.3 The carousel activity features 5 real world scenarios linked to smart devices, embedded systems which students then record and share their thoughts on the impacts that it has. Class teacher/Students can gather thoughts and lead discussion based on students thoughts - good revision activity, or to assess understanding before progressing in this unit of work.

It includes a set of data that needs to be analysed. Learners are required to brainstorm questions that a Sales Manager would need to know about the transactional data. They then create pivot tables based on the questions. There is a second spreadsheet that contains 8 sample questions and pivot tables that relate to the questions.
