Architectural Landmarks in London - Research & Creative Technology Project

Architectural Landmarks in London - Research & Creative Technology Project

In this lesson, students learn more about famous structures and landmarks in London, England and the individuals who created them. Students choose the landmarks they will research and then choose the software they will use to showcase their research. Students can choose to create a presentation, a brochure, or a newspaper using Web 2.0 tools (free, no download needed) or by using Microsoft Office or Google Apps. For classrooms with limited technology, this lesson can be completed with students working in pairs or small groups. The completed presentations can be shared with the rest of the class if the teacher chooses. This is a great activity for a social studies or history class, or for a technology class. This lesson was designed for middle school (grades 6-8) but could be used in upper elementary grades or high school as well. Files included: • Teacher & Student Resources • Student Instructions, Expectations and Grading Rubric

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

ICT differentiated Secret Garden Mary Lennox character task using PEE, point, evidence and explain

ICT differentiated Secret Garden Mary Lennox character task using PEE, point, evidence and explain

Pupils are given the opening of Secret Garden and a grid giving clues to techniques used to show character. An example of the grid is below: Point - We find out about Mary Lennox’s character from what the narrator tells us directly about her. Evidence – I know this because it says… Explanation – This shows that… Working with the word document, pupils have to copy quotations from the text that prove the character points listed and paste them into the grid table. Next they fill in the table by explaining how their quotation proves the point. There are three sheets, differentiated for different abilities, requiring children who need more support to just fill in the section explaining how their quotation proves their point. There is a worksheet to show pupils how to work out clues to a character and an explanation of PEE (point, evidence, explain) the task can also be done on paper without a computer using the text. I asked the children to use three colours for the point, evidence, explanation.

Advanced Higher: Creating a Database Driven Website using HTML, SQL and PHP

This resource takes pupils through the process of creating a Database Driven Website using XAMPP to create their server and MYPHP Admin for PHP and SQL. The Web Application I use is Microsoft Expression 4, but it can be done on any other Web Authoring Software. This booklet has made the Unit Assessment so much more manageable for my AH Computing Science pupils.
