[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.
