GCSE Computer Science - Ethical & Legal Debate GeneratorQuick View

GCSE Computer Science - Ethical & Legal Debate Generator

This PowerPoint features 100 ethical and legal debates based on the AQA and Edexcel GCSE Computer Science specifications. As per the AQA specification, it deals with: • cyber security • mobile technologies • wireless networking • cloud storage • theft of computer code • issues around copyright of algorithms • cracking • hacking • wearable technologies • computer based implants. With a focus on privacy. It also includes some other ethical issues (e.g. relating to AI, automation) that students will find interesting. Each debate asks students to move from one side of the room or the other to make their position clear: teachers should then use questioning to foster a debate between students, encouraging them to present reasons for their choice and defend their position. This resource can be used for an entire lesson, but it is recommended as a tool to use at the end of lessons throughout the course: it's especially useful in the event that your lesson finishes early, as a good way to use the last minutes.
