A few lessons to get students searching more effectively using brackets, +, - etc and thinking about the accuracy of information on the web.
search.ppt = teacher presentation
p5.pdf = basic web searches
p10.pdf = Information unreliability
Describing the target audience and purpose of a project or intended project.
2 page worksheet explaining how one can define a target audience - with help from adverts from Kia and VW.
There is a spider diagram to help students to explain the purpose of a project too.
This 5* rated resource does NOT contain complete solutions for the NEA.
But what it does contain are clearly presented code snippets, designed to help reinforce application of programming knowledge, helping students to understand code and create their own solutions without giving up hope, in a relatively short space of time.
I’ve been programming, and teaching for a long time, and understand that some students can struggle to code. This one-stop shop aims to give students the confidence to work out their own solutions from this one easily-accessible reference guide.
This resource shows how to complete tasks such as file handling; in the most straightforward way possible. File handling needn’t be complicated. I’ve seen some trying to use SQL, CSV or JSON formatted data. This often leads to needless confusion amongst those just starting their programming journey. None of this is necessary. This resource shows you how to use simple code to manage files…and much much more.
This resource helps students to have those ‘eureka’ moments as they piece together ideas and get to grips with programming (it can also help staff!)
It is clearly presented and contains enough ideas to help students to feel good about being able to code their own solution.
