Storyboarding lesson suitable to be used at all levels. The pupils complete different storyboards depending on their ability before the actual completed storyboards are shown to them for them to compare against. They are then provided with a template to complete for their own work. This lesson was used successfully to teach this topic to OCR Nationals ICT students.
A set of 12 resources which are suitable for use as homework or in class tasks. Some have mark schemes with them, there are also some that have definitions to learn as part of the homework. They cover a good range of the GCSE ICT specification and will save you loads of time as you will have about a whole years worth of homework (e.g. one per fortnight). These are in word format so you can change the names to pupils in your class as they seem to engage with them more. Based on the Edexcel GCSE ICT specification.
