E-safety Scheme of Work: Year 1 - 6

E-safety Scheme of Work: Year 1 - 6

This scheme of work is made up by providing links to other free resources available on the internet. These include Google Be Internet Awesome and Digital Literacy curriculum, SWGfL, ThinkUKnow. IMPORTANT: I am in no way trying to pass these off as my own work, merely putting links to them all in one place and creating a SoW out of them with progression through year groups and learning objectives. I intend to put together a complete Scheme of Work, including E-safety, Digital Literacy and Coding, created from other free resources in the next few months. I wish to thank the creators of these resources and I am glad I am able to present them for your use. Jody Carter @codeyjody

Mobile Application Development Activity

Mobile Application Development Activity

This could be used whilst teaching ‘Appshed’ to KS3 students. It would be a good homework for either the 1st or 2nd week as it begins to questions the features of mobile applications which will support when students begin to draft their own applications. This could either be used as an activity in class or as a homework.

OCR A Level Computer Science Project Marksheet (self and peer marking)

Empower your A Level student’s to stick to the mark schemes and reflect more accurately on their own work. This resource has been designed against the OCR A Level Computer Science Non-Exam Assessment to enable students to reflect on and mark their own coursework. No more constant meetings, readings and feedback, and no more students wasting their efforts on producing work that doesn’t fit the mark scheme. Students use this as the back bone and driving structure behind their work. The resource includes instructions for students, how to mark and reflect, and encourages them to mark their page numbers against their projects to speed up final marking by the teacher. A Data Sheet at the back is for teachers to update the grade boundaries for each year’s cohort. This also enables the teachers marking the coursework to make sure that their marking is moderated as the scheme leaves little to interpretation. For each mark statement ask yourself, is this true or false? What pages has this been demonstrated on? One of my most useful and valuable resources that I’ve developed for my practice at A Level teaching, I’m currently working on an AQA equivalent for my new school.
