DCF for Primary

DCF for Primary

Rob-bot Resources presents a complete guide to support primary school teachers in the delivery of the Digital Competency Framework (DCF) in Wales. Following the Donaldson Report (2015), the need to improve digital competency within students across Wales was identified as being as important to the development of students as literacy and numeracy. This document provides practical solutions as to how primary teachers of years 3-6 can confidently deliver these requirements across a broad range of subjects. Where possible I have included "unplugged" solutions, i.e those that don't require a computer to fulfill the requirements, so that teachers of all backgrounds can feel confident in the delivery of the framework. ***Please leave a review! ***

Application of Computational Thinking - Create an Interactive Story

Application of Computational Thinking - Create an Interactive Story

This unit of work introduces year 7 students to the concepts of computational thinking and logical thinking. It is split into three fully differentiated sections: 1. Design an interactive story using a flowchart to identify the key decision points within your story. 2. Create an interactive story using PowerPoint, hyperlinking the slides to the correct locations. 3. Test and evaluate your story and make improvements where required. I have included some slides to provide additional assistance, for example hyperlinking auto shapes, removing the on mouse click advancements, etc. Alongside developing computational thinking skills, this unit is also an opportunity for students to develop their graphic design skills. I have also included an example interactive story so students can get an idea of what they could create themselves, while considering what they could make even better themselves. This resource is a perfect continuation from my Introduction Computational Thinking for KS3 resource! ***Please Leave a Review***

Computational Thinking for KS4

Computational Thinking for KS4

This comprehensive unit of work introduces the concepts of computational thinking to students at KS4. It covers all elements of computational thinking such as Decomposition, Pattern Recognition, Abstraction and Algorithmic Design. I have also included debugging within the work. Each section is explained and followed by tasks to help develop student understanding. I have also included a 'supermarket sweep' computational thinking problem and a final project exercise which has three levels of difficulty. ***Please leave a review!***

Excel Sport Tournament Planner

Excel Sport Tournament Planner

Created to follow the teams within the Euro 2016 football championship finals. The spreadsheet follows the tournament from the group stage, to the knock out stage, all the way to the last 16. The top four third placed teams have also been worked out, though in a slightly different way to FIFA (points, goal difference, goals for, goals against, wins, losses)! I've left the teams in so you can see how the sheet works. I was initially interested in seeing if I could work out which of the top third placed teams would progress to the knock out stage, then decided to make a full tournament spreadsheet. I've left the spreadsheet unprotected so you can adapt and change as you see fit. Group stage sheet: Adjust team names: Team names are easily adjusted: Simply replace the country names within the WHITE group stage boxes and within the hidden cells (Between columns Q - AF and AT-BJ). Scoring: Add scores within the score columns. The BLUE tables will adjust accordingly. Knockout round sheet: Adjust Knock out round locations: Simply rewrite the names of the knockout round locations. The information will adjust accordingly. Scoring: Simply add the resultant scores within the scoring columns. The results will automatically insert the winning teams into the next round of the competition. I used this with my tutor group to follow the Euro 2016 football tournament, but it is also ideal for use within regional competitions. Lots of cross curricular links with ICT, PE, Digital Competence and maths lessons.
