Scratch Game Creation Unit

Scratch Game Creation Unit

This 14-lesson unit of work takes students through the process of creating their own game in Scratch. They start by considering what makes a game successful and then move on to learn gaming concepts like sprite movement, animation, collision detection and variables using Scratch. The lessons directly link to Scratch game resources I have placed in the Barney Game Studio on the Scratch website (http://scratch.mit.edu/studios/1977310/). At the end of their unit, there is a lesson on user testing where they will get the opportunity to peer assess the games they create. They can also create an instruction manual for their game, evaluating the forms and conventions of such documents and using desktop publishing software to create their own.

TopicTest1 : Cambridge Technicals Level 3 Spec 2016 Unit 1 Fundamentals of IT

TopicTest1 : Cambridge Technicals Level 3 Spec 2016 Unit 1 Fundamentals of IT

This topic test focuses on Unit 1 L01 and Unit 1 L02 - there are lots of conversion questions. I used this test after covering the first two LOs. The test is one hour. I made students show working so that I can check their techniques even though the exam questions may not ask for workings. During learning stage, it will be useful. Sample solution is provided. Marks allocation are also included on the test paper but may not included on the space provided on the picture.The binary conversion approach may look long-winded but that was the approach shown on the text book and I decided to use the same conversion approach to help students remember. For multiple choice, it doesn't matter which approach they use. If show working is expected, I asked my students to follow the approach used in the text book, which was why the sample solution used that - if you are wondering why i chose a long-winded way.
