Hi, welcome to my shop. I have over 15 years teaching experience and have enjoyed every moment of inspiration and achievement. Have a look at the different resources available, try the free stuff and get some ideas for yourself. I have tested all the resources with classes that I teach and refined them before publishing so that common misconceptions are addressed in the material or explained in the teacher notes. Every step is explained as simply as possible without wasting time on repetition.

Dreamweaver - Creating A Website

Dreamweaver - Creating A Website

(1)
Welcome… Note that the illustrations are from Dreamweaver CS6. Creative Cloud is very similar, but will not be exactly the same. This is a set of 3 booklets, an exemplar analysis and a complete website example, that will show students how to create a multipage website. It is loosely based on the Cambridge Nationals iMedia R085 course, although you would need to include a testing table to satisfy those requirements for example. Instead of focusing on a particular examination board, these tutorials will walk students through the usual tasks that often arise. You can obviously teach additional skills or miss out parts that are not relevant to your course. The software illustrated is Dreamweaver CS6, but will also work very similarly in Creative Cloud. Contents: Booklet 1 - Analysis (5 Pages): This takes students through the process of analysing a brief. It looks at Client Requirements, Target Audience, Mind Maps, Mood Boards, Templates and House Styles. There are 5 tasks totalling around 100 minutes of learning exercises and an exemplar document is also included. Booklet 2 - Template (17 Pages): Here students will create a template page following a simple table layout (I find this easier than DIV’s for my students). It shows how to setup the file structure, set up a table, add a banner, rollover images for the main menu and attaching a CSS stylesheet. Booklet 3 - Content (12 Pages): This final section shows how to create the multiple pages from the template and then add content such as images, text, hyperlinks, email links, and forms. The website is included in a ZIP file so you can provide students with as much material and support as you want, or get them to create their own content. If you enjoy the tutorial, please leave a review to help others find it too :) All the best, HackDragn
Beginning Python Programming – Dungeon Escape

Beginning Python Programming – Dungeon Escape

(0)
Welcome… This is designed to be used after the Beginning Python Programming examples. The price helps support the free resources also published. A more complex demonstration of how you can build a dungeon/map game. The game utilises a 2D Array to store a map so that directions can be correctly calculated depending on the player position. The progam also uses a global variable for the map, functions, integer floor division and modulus for time calculations. Development of the game could include: Changing the map, altering the size of the map (look out for limiting variables), adding a wandering monster, adding a new message for the starting square, increasing difficulty, adding a new scoring system and lots more that I’m sure you’ll think of. The explanation lines have been commented out so you can simply copy and paste the whole document into IDLE (or similar) and see it working, or print to use as a help guide.
