My School Network task sheets plus Networks terms wordsearch - Computer Science / ICT

My School Network task sheets plus Networks terms wordsearch - Computer Science / ICT

This resource is suitable for students learning about networks and their setup (Year 9+). This pack includes the following: My School Network tasks - 6 pages (15 tasks plus example questions for the IT engineer at the school) (PDF) Above editable version My School Network completed sample - 7 pages (PDF) Above editable version Networks terminology wordsearch (54 words) The 15 tasks were created to support Year 10 Computer Science and ICT students in their learning about Networks. The tasks were completed as the students went on a tour, led by the school’s head IT technician / engineer, of the school’s network setup. The tasks can be used / adapted for younger / older students, or depending on their abilities. In our case, the sheets were printed and students completed them by hand using clipboards, but it would also work fine if the students edit the Word document on their devices. The tasks cover the basics including ‘Find out why we have a school network’, ‘Draw what you think the school’s server looks like’, several questions about the school’s backup procedure, questions regarding internet speed, and some sample questions to ask the IT technician / engineer in a Q&A session. The students thoroughly enjoyed the tour, including being wowed by numbers and figures and being allowed to be near the server room, and felt a lot more savvy after understanding what all these devices were in the corridors, walls and ceilings. This definitely made their learning come to life and gave them a clearer understanding of networks and their setup. They also got to know the IT support staff a lot better and expressed great thanks at the end of the tour. It’d be a good idea to meet up with the technicians / engineers in advance to plan out the tour and even prepare them with some of the questions that will be asked.

Still Looking For A Teaching Job? Follow This Checklist

Still Looking For A Teaching Job? Follow This Checklist

Teaching is the dream profession of many young graduates. It gives them a chance to be heard and share their knowledge with others. It’s a great profession for those who have leadership skills and want to be social. If you have applied to a number of teaching positions and still haven’t become successful, here’s a checklist for you: Consider moving Instead of limiting your job search to your neighboring schools and colleges, send the applications to big schools even if they are far away. If you get selected, you can always move to another city. After all, a job at a premiere college or school will be a great move for your career. Get your paperwork ready Make sure you have your resume, cover letter, and other documents ready. Proofread your resume several times to make sure it does not have any mistakes. Be available on social networks Your presence on social media networks like LinkedIn can help you build connections. If you are connected to administrators from colleges and schools, there are chances that they will prefer you over others when it’s time to hire. Attend job fairs Attend the job fairs held at your alma mater along with those at the neighboring colleges and universities. You have better chances of being selected at your alma mater than the others. Prepare for the interview There are some questions that are asked frequently. For example, “what can you bring to this school” and “how do you plan to influence the students”. Come up with witty and professional answers for these questions. Share vignettes Be open during the interview and share some positive vignettes about your previous experiences. These could include student achievements, classroom management, and unique teaching methodologies that you follow. Follow-up Sometimes the college or school might take extra time in hiring. If you follow up using emails, there are higher chances of you being hired. When you email them, state again that you would love to work with them. Stay positive It’s a tough economy but teaching positions keep opening every now and then in various schools and colleges. Don’t give up hope and you’ll soon bag a great teaching job. That’s it for now Busy Educator. Until next time, Talk to each other, support each other, take care of each other.’ Marjan

Drop Down Day : Careers and Enterprise

Drop Down Day : Careers and Enterprise

Drop Down Day / Off Timetable Day Pack - A set of 6 lessons to cover a Drop Down Day (6 hours) all about careers and enterprise. The Drop Down Day was put together for Year 10 originally, but all the resources are editable and well-differentiated so it could be used with any year group KS4 / KS3 with a tweak or so. The overall theme for the series of KS4 Drop Down Days was ‘Independent Living’, so this is just one in a series of six which ran throughout the year. This particular day was run just before the Year 10s went off for work experience, as we decided that this would be a great way to prepare them and convey the importance of focusing on their possible future employment opportunities. As 25% of Britains now class themselves as self-employed, two out of the six sessions also have a large focus on entrepreneurship and enterprise skills. All these individual lessons have been rated very highly by Tes users and are tried and tested in my own department. You can find many more inexpensive and free PSHE, Citizenship and RE resources at my shop: <a href=“https://www.tes.com/teaching-resources/shop/EC_Resources”><br /> Leave me a review and pick any other resource for free :)</a><br />
