Traffic lights and LED's on Raspberry Pi's

Traffic lights and LED's on Raspberry Pi's

A 6 lesson resource including lesson plans and accompanying PowerPoint's introducing students to set up and creation of Raspberry pi's, breadboards and LED use. Please note you will need breadboards and LED's along with appropriate wires and pi's to enable this to work! Some knowledge of raspberry pi and wiring will also be required. The accompanying workbook is designed for students to draw out wiring diagrams and program notes in order that they can recreate projects each lesson. Lesson plans include time to "get out" and pack away raspberry pi's assuming they are not always set up. This is a slightly older resource but is designed to be adapted to suit individual school needs and set ups. Levelling help sheets and feedback templates are also provided. Some teacher knowledge is expected but these should provide a good starting point for further experimentation.

Cambridge Technicals Level 3 IT Unit 1 Fundamentals of IT

Cambridge Technicals Level 3 IT Unit 1 Fundamentals of IT

I made these PLC (personalised learning checklist) for my students when going through each LO. My students find it useful to make sure they cover what they supposed to cover. They also used them for exam revision checklist. The format is more user-friendly than the format in the spec. I refer to the spec and the text book to consolidate. The template was edited from old spec checklist shared by Enroth (thank you Mr Enroth)- i used the same ones as my students are familiar with the template - no point changing, right?? I have put a lot of time to develop these (it's not just copy and paste.....) and if you like it, let me know. I can post the other units - still doing...I am asking for some donations so that I can buy other resources that people are charging on TES. Things are not all for free .... anymore.... or wait till you get free credits from TES :)If you want me to post PLC for the unit 2 Global Info and Unit 3 Cyber Security, please review these unit 1 PLCs...
