Political and Economic Impacts of ICT

Political and Economic Impacts of ICT

This is a KS3 Year 9 lesson I taught around the political and economic impacts of ICT (topic 22). This lesson gets students to look at a range of articles, looking at the impact of corruption politically and how ICT could have a positive and negative influence. Included: PPT Starter Links to research on corruption ** I had to remove the images for the plenary due to copyright however I have left the names on each slide so is still possible to play, if necessary you can simply add the images back.

UPKS2 Computing Planning - E-Safety and Blogging

UPKS2 Computing Planning - E-Safety and Blogging

A unit of work teaching children key e-safety concepts relating to online activity and reputation. Unit focuses upon blogging as an outcomes and structures much of the e-safety related themes around this main activity. Use of a free blogging site is needed, of which there are many avaialble. Teachers should sign up for an education account and set up a user for each of the children they teach. Seven Lessons: LO: To know how to practise good e-safety. LO: To know how online communication can be interpreted in different ways. LO: To identify the features of a strong password. LO: To know how to create and edit a blog. LO: To know that not all the information on the internet is accurate. LO: To know what cyberbullying is and how to protect yourself against it. LO: To know how to comment appropriately on the internet.

LWKS2 Computing Planning - E-Safety and Search Engines

A unit of work teaching children about e-safety relating to the use of search engines. Also included is some teaching of the technical processes behind how engines work. The unit ends with a mini project where children are taught how to use what they have learnt about search engines in order to research an idea relating to their curriculum topic. Seven Lessons: LO: To know how a search engine functions. LO: To know how to use search engines effectively to get appropriate results. LO: To know how to save and share websites safely. LO: To know how webpages are ranked in search results. LO: To know the risks involved in online communication. LO: To know how to select an idea to research. LO: To know how to use a search engine safely to complete research. Unit is targeted at lower key stage 2, but would be suitable for all of key stage 2, if children had not experienced this topic already.

How does electricity flow through small objects: KS4 - Logically Speaking

How does electricity flow through small objects: KS4 - Logically Speaking

Currently, electronic switches in the form of transistors and diodes are the building blocks for computers and other electronic devices. Scientists at the University of Oxford are researching how electricity flows in nanoscale electronics. In the future it may be possible to create electronic switches that are based on individual molecules. In this lesson students find out a bit more about the development of electronic components over the years and are introduced to logic gates and truth tables. Learning outcomes: Students are able to recall that computers are made up of components that have become smaller and more efficient over time. Students are able to predict the outputs of basic logic gates given specific inputs. Students are able to create and interpret truth tables for simple logic gates.

What are quantum rainbows: KS4 - Let's Get Digital

What are quantum rainbows: KS4 - Let's Get Digital

Much of our modern life involves receiving and transmitting data; watching TV, posting on social media, sending emails etc. Although we might want to receive something complicated like sound and moving images, in order to process and send the information it is first converted into a set of numbers. The numbers are stored and processed on the computer as binary code which consists of only two options, usually written as 1 and 0. This is often referred to as binary or digital. This lesson looks at how sound can be encoded into digital form. Learning Outcomes: Sound waves can be represented visually on an oscilloscope or similar. How amplitude and wavelength are related to volume and pitch. To store and process sound, computers have to convert analogue signals such as sound waves into numbers (digital).

What are quantum rainbows: KS3 - Colour Coded

What are quantum rainbows: KS3 - Colour Coded

A huge amount of data is transmitted and received using light down fibre optic cables. Currently that information is sent digitally using binary code (i.e the light can be ‘on’ or ‘off’ representing 1 or 0 respectively. Scientists from the QCUMbER project, led by the University of Oxford, are looking at clever ways to encode light with more ‘colour’ options than just on or off. Increasing the number of colour options, increases the amount of information each bit of light can convey. In this resource, students learn how information can be converted into code, such as binary (using 1s and 0s), or how using colours instead of just ‘on’ and ‘off’ can allow you to encode more information with fewer ‘bits’. Learning outcomes: Data is often converted into binary/digital code For light, binary means on or off If we could use ‘colours’ we could send more data with a single bit of light See more at: https://www.oxfordsparks.ox.ac.uk/content/what-are-quantum-rainbows

Variables, Data types, Input and Selection

Variables, Data types, Input and Selection

This lesson is ideal for helping students use Flowgorithm. It introduces the concepts of variables and data types in Flowgorithm. This can be used at KS3 and KS4 as an introduction to programming. The students will create two flowcharts during this lesson: 1) A very simple one that uses inputs 2) A grade calculator that takes input from the user. Once students have completed this lesson they will be able to use Flowgorithm to: Get the user to enter an input. Use concatenation. Make decisions based on user input. This includes a paper based exercise for the students to use in class or it can be used as homework.
