***GCSE Computer Science - Computer Systems: Ethics/Cultural Theory (3 lessons)***

This resource is aimed at teachers delivering GCSE Computer Science to students and require tailor made resources. I have created the resources and made use of videos to back up information and examples. You can use this in a number of ways e.g. for student to develop their knowledge and understanding, to use as revision material or to deliver in class and create a task based on the content I have created. I have used this with my own class and have had great results. The following topics are covered with this resource: 1 - Ethical & Cultural Issues 2 - Modern World 3 - Legislation & Privacy

Using functions and creating a Tkinter GUI interface in Python

Using functions and creating a Tkinter GUI interface in Python

21 quick, simple challenges covering using functions and two documents on how to use Tkinter to create a GUI interface. Includes explanation, example code and suggested possible answers. A BONUS “Chunky Challenge” included allowing your students to practice these skills in a larger task to prepare for more complex tasks that involve computational thinking skills. In order to get the most out of these documents I recommend you use them in the following order: functions, GUI part 1, GUI part 2 and finally the chunky challenge. From my experience in teaching Python and other programming languages, I feel it works best when pupils only learn about using functions when they are starting to create more advanced programs that require them. For this reason, this document does assume a lot of previous confidence with using Python's basic programming structure before they tackle this section. If you are a teacher who likes to introduce functions early on in the pupils programming experience, then the functions document will not work in your classroom as it assumes pupils have a confidence with the basic programming skills already in order to complete the challenges. The skills the pupils must already have confidence with include: • input • print • if statements • loops (for and while) • strings • mathematical operators • tuples and lists • saving to and reading from a text file • saving to and reading from a .csv file For more lessons and complete units of work visit www.nicholawilkin.com.

The Internet Wordsearch ICT Computing Starter Settler Activity Homework Cover Lesson

The Internet Wordsearch ICT Computing Starter Settler Activity Homework Cover Lesson

Wordsearch on the theme of 'The Internet'. Powerpoint so can be used on the board or printed as a worksheet. Includes space for students to explain the keywords and suggested extension activities. Can take 10 minutes or an hour, depending on which activities the students complete. Ideal for the start of a lesson, a quick filler, a homework, part of a cover lesson or as a plenary on the board with a whiteboard pen. The idea behind these is to get students to become more literate and think independently about the words that could be used to describe the topic being taught. The repetition of the word over and over as they look for the word is useful in remembering the terms. Often the students will pick up on things that you would not normally expect!
