Edexcel GCSE ICT Course Booklet v2.0

Edexcel GCSE ICT Course Booklet v2.0

This course booklet contains all of the: - worksheets - chunking/terminology activities for each lesson - homeworks - associated mind map and revision activities - revision activities - literacy activities - differentiated word searches and crosswords I issue each student that I teach with this booklet and we work through it with the associated PowerPoints. The booklet starts with a specification checklist and a PLC activity for each unit of work. Each lesson starts with the associated chunking/terminology and then features lesson content and an associated home task (past paper of exam-style questions). I work through these one lesson at a time and test the terminology/chunking knowledge in the next lesson (usually a practical or CAB lesson). At the completion of each teaching block, student create their own mind map. At the end of the course are some revision activities and high quality mind maps. This is the complete document for teaching the Edexcel GCSE ICT theory components. This document last my classes for two years.

Edexcel GCSE ICT Theory Mind Maps and Question Bank

Edexcel GCSE ICT Theory Mind Maps and Question Bank

These resources are summary mind maps that can be used in isolation at the end of a topic or as a revision tool at the end of a course. They can be used appropriately as formative or summative activities. Each mind map has associated past paper questions and questions taken from, or inspired by the course workbooks and revision guide. I have confirmed with Pearson that i have permission to share these resources with other teachers and students. The topics include: Personal Digital Devices, Connectivity, Operating Online, Online Communities, Online Goods and Services & Issues. And questions are in three colour columns (1 mark - blue; 2 marks - orange; 3/6 marks - purple). I tend to use these resources for group work tasks where students get a series of points for the methods that they have used to work out the answers. The resources are printed/designed for A3 and students get 3x the marks for knowing the answers without the use of mind-map or research. 2x the marks for using the mind maps and 1x the marks for utilising online research methods to work out the answer. Going through the solutions is done via the medium or a walking-talking exam. At the end of the session, I photograph and e-mail a copy of the completed questions to the class and individuals take home their own blank copy of the activity sheet to work on and target their own misconception or gaps in knowledge. I have also added a black and white version in order to save on printing costs for colleagues. UPDATE: Amended questions for Online Goods and Services 2. UPDATE 2: Now included is a simple spreadsheet to document team progress.

Spreadsheet A&E - OCR Cambridge Nationals Information Technologies

This is a resource that goes through each of the formulae that students need to know for the course. It has an activity for them to practice each formula and apply it to a working situation. My students come back to this when they build any spreadsheet and can’t remember how to do a certain formula.

OCR Nationals Information Technologies (new for Sept 2017)

Please find available a presentation and associated worksheet to evidence student progress in Module 1, Activity 1 - The Project Life Cycle. I will be adding more lessons as and when produced and a course booklet when I have finished preparing every lesson (this could take some time though). Each presentation also contains 6-7 'Chunking' words to familiarise students with subject specific terminology. These can be assessed in subsequent lessons - I use a Moodle quiz function on my subject page to do this. i also have a Moodle course that will fully support the delivery of this qualification - please email me for more details.

Teacher's Digital Planner (Excel)

Teacher's Digital Planner (Excel)

This digital planner is primarily aimed at those teachers who type faster than they write! However, I have continually used this with teaching staff that are struggling with the quality of their planning, monitoring, recording or reporting. It serves as the traditional 'teacher planner' in an easy to use format that can be amended to include your students and class names - this information can be directly imported form your School Management System (SIMS). I find this particularly useful at the end of the academic year when we are thinking about amendments that need to be made to programmes or study, schemes of learning or individual lessons. Information can easily be copy and pasted across classes in your planner if you teach parallel groups in a year group or into new programmes or study, schemes of learning or individual lessons as you evaluate the success of your teaching as an individual or department. As someone who monitors carries out Quality Assurance of several departments, this resource is fantastic at giving me instant access to staff's planning and assessment data. I have centralised this as a collaborative tool using Google Drive, allowing staff to access their planner on multiple devices, whilst providing me with a great overview.

Feedback comment banks for marking

Feedback comment banks for marking

According to Professor John Hattie, feedback has the biggest impact on learning. However, the written feedback that we provide is often rushed (in a bid to finish marking that pile of books!) It is also a common trait that we don’t teach our students how to use the feedback that we provide. So with this method, I tend to concentrate on writing quality feedback and at the start of the year, following my first written feedback, we work on how to use this information to inform and progress our learning. As a result, this is a document type that I use on a daily basis in school. The concept involves writing a set of statements that can be used to feedback on a piece of work. I tend to write the statements/comments at the same time as I write each of the tasks as this allows me to think of all of the possible outcomes that a student will produce. The feedback for each task is provided in four ways: Instant: this is the feedback that the students look for straight away. It very quickly establishing ‘how well’ they have done/ Constructive: this part of the feedback outlines exactly what the student has done well and what they need to develop. I simply ‘copy and paste’ the whole statement into the feedback box and colour code it appropriately. Students are now used to looking into this section in order to ascertain the specifics of where they have achieved/no achieved. Progressive: this is essentially an extension task for the student to follow. I often differentiate these pase on the ‘Constructive’ section. It takes the form of a link to a website; a video lecture or an activity. Sometimes these are assessed online - i.e. a Moodle Quiz or Educanon Assessment. Specific: this section focuses on the school or subject priority. For example, Literacy is high profile in our school environment so I will often tailor comments in this section to be around Literacy and quality of written answers.

BBC Micro:bit (Microbit) lessons

BBC Micro:bit (Microbit) lessons

I have been using these lessons challenges with a series of groups and they appear to have been really well received. Like many professionals, I have been trying to get to grips with the Micro:bit and find resources or lessons for my students to have a go at. There are loads around and this is a collection of progressive tasks that I think have been put together in a really coherent way for the teenage mind. Each one is a video tutorial which will guide your students through each step and provide them with the theory behind each decision made in the program. I would love to know your thoughts and I will add more, as and when they arrive. I have used this resource over three lessons... a great filler once the students get to grips with it. This also now includes a Python activity as well as Block Editor challenges. in terms of assessment and monitoring progress... I have been keeping a very simple spreadsheet and inputting when the student has been to show me their finished task - this means that I can open a dialogue with the student and find out what they found easy/difficult with the task, as well as being able to redirect them onto another task or target misconceptions.
