50 x ICT Computing Colouring Sheets Keyword Starter Settler Programming IT Cover Lesson

50 x ICT Computing Colouring Sheets Keyword Starter Settler Programming IT Cover Lesson

50 x Copyright-free ICT colouring sheets on the theme of 'ICT/Computing'. Powerpoint so can be used on the board or printed as colouring sheets. Includes suggested extension activities. Can take 10 minutes or an hour, depending on which activities the students complete. Ideal for the start of a lesson, a quick filler, a homework, part of a cover lesson or as a plenary on the board with a whiteboard pen. The idea behind these is to get students to become more literate and think independently about the words that could be used to describe the topic being taught. Often the students will pick up on things that you would not normally expect!

How do you teach coding?

How do you teach coding?

How do you teach coding? Who is this for? For primary teachers who teach programming - for both non-specialist and specialist computing teachers. What is it? This is a 15-minute research questionnaire by researchers at Queen Mary University of London. Why might you do this? Just doing the questionnaire, will help you think about your own planning and how you teach coding. If you are interested in taking part in the research to improve how we teach programming, pop your email at the end of the survey. Please help us find out more about how we teach programming so we can improve what how we teach our primary pupils how to code! Here is the research questionnaire. https://goo.gl/forms/4nWlR1kQ2r8mnFud2

DCF for Primary

DCF for Primary

Rob-bot Resources presents a complete guide to support primary school teachers in the delivery of the Digital Competency Framework (DCF) in Wales. Following the Donaldson Report (2015), the need to improve digital competency within students across Wales was identified as being as important to the development of students as literacy and numeracy. This document provides practical solutions as to how primary teachers of years 3-6 can confidently deliver these requirements across a broad range of subjects. Where possible I have included "unplugged" solutions, i.e those that don't require a computer to fulfill the requirements, so that teachers of all backgrounds can feel confident in the delivery of the framework. ***Please leave a review! ***
