Updated: Peer Assessment. Classwork, exercise book, final product or model

A peer assessment task that allows pupils to assess a peer's classwork, final product or model that they have completed. It also allows peers to set a target for improvement. Objective: Encourage pupils to create a balanced, critical view when evaluating a product. By promoting the evaluation of someone else's work, they are able to look at the product objectively without bias, particularly if the product they evaluate is not that of the person they sit next to. Assessment: It can be used to inform AoL and formally documented by a teacher, or used more readily in session by a teacher who can then recall common targets for improvement, discussing with Q&A how these could be achieved. Prior Knowledge: The criteria of the project, which will have been set by the classroom teacher or discussed in the form of a specification possibly. Expectations: Pupils should begin to create a balanced, structured argument about products in general. They should use their K&U along with their experiences to identify and set appropriate targets for themselves and their peers. Hints: These can be folded, hole punched and, with some string, tied to the product. To save on labour, the kids can do this, and it creates a simple practical element to the evaluation. Another way to do this is to print them, cut them out and glue them together. Laminate them and the pupils can then complete them with water-based markers, which can easily be wiped off. This is more time-consuming, but saves time in the lesson and saves materials in the long run

Genie Microcontroller - How 2 - Circuit Diagrams, PCB Layout and Flow charts

Genie Microcontroller - How 2 - Circuit Diagrams, PCB Layout and Flow charts

Genie Microcontrollers offer students a fantastic array of inventive opportunities to develop a broad range of projects. Students are able to use their imagination and solve real life problems with these low cost PIC's, however managing a classroom full of students who all want to develop different circuits can be a challenge.I developed the Genie how 2 book in order to give students the opportunity to independently create their own circuits with minimal teacher support.The students start by creating a basic Genie E18 circuit (I have found this to be the most versatile and best value for money). The student then use the guide to show them how to add whichever input and output components that they choose.Students can follow the guide to create a PCB layout and to create a flow chart to program their microcontroller.I have found this to be a very effective tool within my classroom and it encourages differentiation and independent learning.I hope you find the guide as useful as my students do.

DT - Catapults and Trebuchets

DT - Catapults and Trebuchets

This is one of my favourite DT projects! Lots of design and engineering opportunities and great fun.The children are given the task of researching and then designing and making their own catapult or trebuchet. Could link well to topics on e.g. War or History or simply be a stand alone fun DT project. If you don't feel too confident about the DT there are plenty of online images and guides that the children can follow.I've only done this once so far but my class loved it and I'm looking forward to doing it again next year. The project culminated in pupils having a competition to see which catapult could launch a ping pong ball the furthest. Hope you enjoy.

Electricity STEM Challenge (Series Circuits and Parallel Circuits)

Electricity STEM Challenge (Series Circuits and Parallel Circuits)

This electricity STEM Challenge is a hands-on investigation of series and parallel circuits that encourages application of what students know about current electricity while they design and create light-up vests for road crew workers. In this activity, students will work through the engineering process by brainstorming, planning, designing, and carrying out their plans to design a light-up vest for road crew workers who work at night. The vests need to light up with both a series circuit and a parallel circuit. Since it is a STEM challenge, students will test their designs, reflect, and possibly have to rework them. This STEM Challenge Covers:✓ Current electricity✓ Making closed, complete circuits✓ The components of current electricity (battery cell, wires, resistor/bulb)✓ Series circuit✓ Parallel circuit✓ The engineering process With This STEM Challenge, You’ll Get:✓ Non-fiction reading piece to help build the background knowledge of the teacher and/or the student✓ Engaging introduction to the STEM activity and problem✓ Higher level thinking, problem solving skills, and cooperative learning✓ Troubleshooting tips, extension ideas, and other helpful hints to make this smooth✓ Practice sheet (printable sort)✓ Anchor chart✓ Detailed teacher information✓ Reflection questions and grading rubric.… and so much more! Materials Used• large brown grocery bag• button batteries• copper tape• electrical tape• LED bulbs• markers• scissorsMost of these materials are linked, in the product, to where I purchased them on Amazon for relatively inexpensive prices in large quantities. How You Can Use This Unit:✓ Broken up over several days✓ As a supplement to an already established program✓ Science centers✓ Whole group, small group, partners, or individual work✓ Enrichment activities

Product Design; Guide to producing an Architectural Render from a SketchUp model using free software

Product Design; Guide to producing an Architectural Render from a SketchUp model using free software

This tutorial is primarily aimed at students currently undertaking A level Edexcel Product Design Graphic Products, AQA Product Design, OCR Design Technology and WJEC / Eduqas Design Technology. The Tutorial can also be used for any students studying Architecture or it could simply be used in any context the teacher feels appropriate to the learning of their class. The main purpose of the lesson is teach the students the basics of producing an architectural render through the sketch-up plugin in ‘Twilight Render’However, the lesson isn’t a comprehensive guide to using ‘Twilight Render’ but a quick and easy introductory lesson – in my experience (as a teacher) though students quickly master the program just by going through the basics provided in this lesson and probably won’t need to master any of the additional options to produce effect and quick renders of their work.
