Christmas Scratch Animated card

Christmas Scratch Animated card

This contains a starter where students are asked to ponder what makes an animated card interesting. The scripts are then given for learners to create a fully animated e-card. It includes moving snow, decorations that find their way to the tree, a star coming from the sky and landing on the tree. Baubles that flash, and a merry Christmas sign that lights up. Some features start automatically and others are interactive. This can be used from around age 7 right up to year 11! Everyone loves a Christmas theme! The lesson ends with a bronze, silver gold worksheet which allows differentiation from a cloze key word task, to considering real life uses, and ends with Blooms evaluative task for more able learners.

Kodu Game Lab Tutorial Series

Kodu Game Lab Tutorial Series

Kodu is an excellent tool to teach pupils the basics of programming and algorithms. In my video tutorial course, I have broken down a wide range of skills and put them into short, easy to follow videos. Whilst the videos are part of a greater package I use for teaching Kodu and in particular programming, algorithms and problem decomposition / solving, I am happy for everyone to use the videos free of charge. I upload new videos each week, with the aim of creating a 12 - 14 lesson series. This tutorial series is aimed at KS3 pupils and has wide ranging differentiation opportunities.
