ICT progression planners for CfE Benchmarks

ICT progression planners for CfE Benchmarks

CfE Early, First and Second level ICT planners that tie in with the benchmarks. They provide potential learning outcomes and some direction of what you could teach in each section of ICT. Some of the wording is based on South Lanarkshire Council systems but could easily be adapted for any authority. These are only suggested outcomes for each year and are fairly ambitious at points (but possible!). They follow DCS progression but are listed as 1.1, 1.2, 1.3 etc. These are my own development and are not authority endorsed planners! Hopefully they can be of use. Some basic wording sourced from Dundee planners.

Commonwealth Games logo

Commonwealth Games logo

A powerpoint to get children to redesign the Glasgow 2014 logo. Children first discuss the well known brand logos in the powerpoint and the various features that makes them effective. Then they look at previous Commonwealth Games logos and the Glasgow 2014 logo and the design features behind it (explanation available on gameonscotland). Children then design their own logo and cut out to put all hexagons together into one large collage.
