Poster: Blooms Taxonomy and Computational Thinking

Poster: Blooms Taxonomy and Computational Thinking

Use Blooms Taxonomy thinking skills to incorporate Computational Thinking Concepts within your lessons. This poster cross references Blooms Taxonomy thinking skills with the concepts of Computational Thinking in order to support your delivery of these concepts within the classroom. Suitability ratings are also provided in order to identify how computational thinking concepts can be linked to their relative thinking skills. ***Please leave a review!

Cosmopolitan Coding - Fun INSET Introduction to Coding

Cosmopolitan Coding - Fun INSET Introduction to Coding

Many teachers were never taught the coding and computer science elements of the new curriculum themselves. This introductory activity helps teachers understand the simplicity of using algorithms as instructions to complete tasks. Teachers will learn: Algorithms and how these are simple instructions Syntax and how this is simply known action in new language Problem solving and debugging code Testing code to see if it works Teachers love this INSET introduction!

Computational Thinking Knowledge Organiser GCSE OCR Computer Science J276

Computational Thinking Knowledge Organiser GCSE OCR Computer Science J276

My current year 11 students have been extremely positive about the Knowledge Organisers that I have created for their Computer Science revision (and students in previous years on the legacy spec). This resource covers the main terms of Computational Thinking; pseudocode and flow charts (and how to apply these); and sub programs. This covers the new J276 OCR specification for GCSE Computer Science. You can either buy this knowledge organiser on its own - or all eight are available for a slightly lower overall cost. Please do leave feedback if possible, I hope you find it useful.

KS3 Computational Thinking Project - Practical Problem Solving (Full Unit of Work)

KS3 Computational Thinking Project - Practical Problem Solving (Full Unit of Work)

**KS3 Computational Thinking Project - Practical Problem Solving (Full Unit of Work) ** This project is designed to either introduce computational thinking skills or to supplement and build on knowledge and skills already acquired. It is suggested that the student booklet is used in conjunction with the associated presentation through all of the lessons. The project has been designed so that is hands-on and practical. The suggested time frame from start to finish of the project is approximately 6-8 lessons, depending on what additional aspects the teacher wishes to introduce during the project. Students are asked to create a stationery holder using everyday objects. The problem has to be approached and solved using computational thinking skills. The project can be approached from a totally ‘unplugged’ pedagogy. No computers required! The resource consists of: a) A student booklet. This can be printed as an A4 or A5 booklet. b) A student booklet containing examplar responses. Also contains extension / homework tasks. c) A PowerPoint presentation for use in lessons to guide students and the teacher. Many of the slides have accompanying ‘speaker notes’ with ideas and suggestions for lessons.

GCSE Computing Revision: Algorithms

GCSE Computing Revision: Algorithms

Handy revision sheet that summarises the topic of Algorithms. The focus is on the AQA 8520 (9 - 1) and gives an overview of the term algorithm, decomposition and abstraction. There is a summary of flowcharts and the symbols. There is a summary of searching algorithms with comparisons of linear and binary. Sorting algorithms are covered and bubble sort and merge sort are compared

Computer Science Flash Activity Sheets

Computer Science Flash Activity Sheets

Prepare your computer science students for Exam season with this great practice resource! This versatile resources is aimed to develop your GCSE computer scientists retrieval skills and practice a range of fundamental skills which consistently appear within GCSE computer science exams. This resource includes a pack of 10 activity sheets within both PowerPoint and PDF format. I have included three different versions: Student pack - activity sheets only Teacher pack - answers (with explanations) only Student self assessment pack - both activity and answers Skills covered include: ASCII conversion Understanding binary and hexadecimal values Binary, denary and hexadecimal conversion Huffman coding Binary addition Memory size conversions These activities can be used as classroom starters, homework or as main classroom activities. It is recommended that these activities are used to practice and assess students ability to perform these skills, not as an introduction. Please leave a review!!!

Computing Design/Algorithm pro-formas (PDF and editable Word docx)

Computing Design/Algorithm pro-formas (PDF and editable Word docx)

As described in my “Delve in, for twelve min!” video CPD, these are example pro-formas to give pupils to design their computing projects. These could be Scratch projects; animations, games, quizzes etc. The design process, which is largely missed in computing, forms an essential part of a coding project, and also provides many benefits in terms of AFL. Please use in conjunction with the training video, and also check out the entire “Delve in, for twelve min!” series: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL3kA-gpaSB2a6Vfdq04rGt5xcKQg8FG8x

OCR J276 Computer Science Paper 2 Revision - Knowledge Organisers

OCR J276 Computer Science Paper 2 Revision - Knowledge Organisers

The new OCR Computer Science 9-1 GCSE specification (J276) has a lot of new knowledge for the students to learn. I have created these knowledge organisers for my Year 11 Computer Science students. I have tried to make them as compact as possible - trying to fit the entire topic onto one side of A4 (two at most). The students used them for their Paper 2 mock exam in December. The feedback was really positive - they found them really helpful to recap the topic and have now also seen how they can be used to help answer the exam questions. As you can probably guess they have taken me many hours to put together and I have been improving them, and correcting them as I have been using them and working with the practice questions to make them as useful as possible. This is the first time I have sold anything on TES, I have found the new spec pretty daunting - so I do hope these can help a few people. Please do give me any feedback if you think there is anything missing and I will make any necessary changes. Thanks Rachel
