iDEA film

iDEA film

When we launched the Bronze Inspiring Digital Enterprise Award a few months ago, we asked some of the people who helped make, test and play with iDEA to create their very own 'video selfie' to put into a little introduction film. We asked them - what do you think of iDEA? How would you describe it? These are the results - you and your students will hear from people who have used iDEA to develop digital and enterprise skills; teachers and university staff who are using it in classrooms, workshops and clubs; partners who are helping make the 'badges' (the online modules) and some of the people who have helped make iDEA happen.

George The Poet film about iDEA

George The Poet film about iDEA

George the Poet has made an inspirational film for iDEA to help inspire people to learn, be curious, discover and make the most of opportunity. "We're the generation that came of age online", he says, and talking of enterprise - calls it "the arena in which iDEAs centralise". He talks about how valuable knowledge is - so teachers can play this in any lesson across the curriculum to help spark interest and passion for learning in young people. George the Poet talks about untapped potential and helps people see that by not participating or learning, they will be left out. He says "We now live in a digital age" and shows how discovery and enterprise can lead to self determination, personal growth and self-sufficiency. Note: George the Poet is a spoken word artists with an interest in social and political issues. The film lasts 3'30 minutes.

Parents Internet Safety Newsletter & Pupil Contract

Parents Internet Safety Newsletter & Pupil Contract

These resources are ideal for school E-safety Officers, computer science co-ordinators or primary class teachers, as they help to establish some basic e-safety guidelines and to create communication between home and school. 1. The newsletter is designed to be sent to parents of primary (KS1 & KS2) children, laying out advice for parents and explaining what the school aims to achieve in the area of online security. It has been written generically enough to be used by any school, but an editable Word version is also included. 2. The pupil contract sets out an agreement of important internet safety rules and expectations to be followed in school. It also has space for a signature from the child and from the parents. Again, this has been written in a broad manner to suit most primary schools, but an editable Word version is also included. Please see the Goldtopfox shop for plenty more e-safety resources: https://www.tes.com/resources/search/?authorId=20240864&q=internet%20safety&shop=goldtopfox

Kodu Game Planning Sheet

Kodu Game Planning Sheet

A planning sheet that pupils can use to plan their own platform game in Kodu. I use with my Year 5 pupils. I find that the second sheet enables them to plan out their algorithms first, as it prompts them to think about what they want each bot or object to do before then requiring them to write down their predicted algorithm.
