ICT Wall Display

ICT Wall Display

Attractive wall display containing 20 large colour coded ICT related acronyms. Based in cloud images, I have cut out the clouds, glued onto blue card and stuck onto the Computer Suite window. There is a colour-coded key that can be used in the same way. The meaning of the acronyms are in small black words above the large bright letters, meaning the pupils will have to go and read them for them to make any sense. I would really appreciate your feedback/a comment when viewing or downloading these resources. Thanks, Simon.

BTEC Command Words and Literacy Mat

BTEC Command Words and Literacy Mat

I created and developed this mat to be printed off in colour and laminated in the IT suite - I teach a great deal of BTEC and use this frequently in my classes. During a recent outstanding observation, the use of my literacy mat was picked up by the Principle where a student used it to define the word 'evaluate' during an assignment writing session. It is bright, colourful and best of all, free. I would love some feedback on this please.

Powerpoint Timer

Powerpoint Timer

This is a selection of three timers that you can add to Powerpoint slides. In 3, 5 and 10 second intervals. It also features a cross when the time is up. Simply click on each item to get it started. Feel free to change the colours, shapes or anything about each timer to suit your project. Please note that this resource is built and designed for Powerpoint on both PC & Mac platforms. You may experience compatibility, functional and formatting issues in other software. After several thousand downloads of the resources that I have shared, it is disappointing to see that I have less than ten comments or votes. I would genuinely appreciate the thirty seconds of your time that it would take you to review or comment my resources.

OCR J276 / 02 Revision Booklet Ready to Print COMPUTER SCIENCE

OCR J276 / 02 Revision Booklet Ready to Print COMPUTER SCIENCE

I made this diary for my students for the second part of the revision process that is coming up in January. This booklet covers every single topic that needs to be revised and can be printed out, handed to each student and used as homework. It is ideal for tracking homework - all they need to do is research each topic at home, and write a sentence or two (or even draw a little diagram) about each topic. To complete a page takes anywhere from about 10 to 30 minutes so it is certainly bite size and easily digestible. The booklet is made in Powerpoint and is easily editable to your own needs/logo etc. YOU MUST ensure that your printer settings are correct prior to printing out. I can't take any responsibility for EBCAK. This is a FREE resource that took a great deal of time to prepare. If you don't like it, delete it and forget it. If you do like it, send a little positive feedback my way. Sharing is caring.

J276 Computer Science student diary

J276 Computer Science student diary

I am using this 'diary' that I created for my students to go with their coursework for the OCR Computer Science J276 GCSE. I created it in Powerpoint and each block represents one hour of the 20 hours that is allowed for the coursework. If the student completes each section after every guided NEA hour that is undertaken, this will support their coursework really well as it gives a really good breakdown of what each student has achieved and how they have progressed and developed during the coursework 20 hour allowance.

Block Busters Game Starter/Plenary Whole School in Powerpoint (with Xmas quiz)

Block Busters Game Starter/Plenary Whole School in Powerpoint (with Xmas quiz)

Blockbusters was/is a British TV Quiz game that was very popular with students in the eighties. It has changed somewhat now however this interactive interface works really well with starters, plenaries and looks like the original screen from the game show. This is as close to the original Blockbusters interface as I could get and is completely interactive. You can use it as a starter or plenary for any department and change the topic to whatever you like. It works really well with a group of any size and age. I use a Lego man for a day as a prize which is blue-tacked to the top of the winners computer screen with a large group of 18+ trainee computer technicians who really enjoy this as a resource. Please note that this is a template for you to edit - even though it comes with instructions, it is ultimately up to you to make the changes that you need to fit in with your teaching. Please don't leave negative feedback if you do not have the time to be able to make changes to it. The instructions have also been added below. I would really appreciate a comment or a rating on this resource. INSTRUCTIONS Hit F5 or click VIEW. You can see that each hexagon is made up of three layers. 1 - Bottom (white) layer 2 - Middle (blue) layer 3 - Top (yellow/letters) layer When the yellow layer (#3) is tapped (on smartboard) or clicked with a mouse, it will fade out to reveal layer # 2. When layer # 2 is clicked or tapped, it will also fade out to reveal layer # 1. Layer #3 is fully editable with regards to the letters or numbers that you wish to add. This particular version that you have has been used with IT hardware acronyms. The learner chooses and guesses an acronym and of they get it right, they gain a point for either the blue or white team. This resource comes with no questions – it is up to you to change the text that is presented on layer #3. This resource is designed for use on a PC with Powerpoint and can be adapted for use in any department. I have also added and included a Chrsitmas Quiz with full questions and answers.

Information Technology Timeline

I created this to use as an informational display in the classroom. It is a varied yet significant view at specific points throughout the last eighty or so years using clear and easy-to-read slides that can all be printed off and made into a display for your room. It is colourful, eye catching and looks fantastic when printed off and added to your wall display. Using the bigger names in technology such as Dell, Hewlett Packard, Atari and Apple, to name but a few. Each image is represented by a brief commentary and the year in history when each significant offering occured. Really opens the eyes of the young people as they are able to see just how technology has advanced. Thanks for looking.

J276 Computing Full Programme Student Resource

J276 Computing Full Programme Student Resource

This 19 page document has been used with student learning in mind. It contains every aspect that the learners need to pass the two exams. It contains the title of each topic coupled with a breakdown of each. Once the student has completed the learning, they can tick each one then receive a date stamp from their teacher. I have been using this format of checking progress in many areas of my teaching within Computer Science and this document, once printed, provides an instant glance into the student's progress. Essentially, this is the only paper document that they will need for the academic year. As the rest of the research is IT based, you can instantly check their progress. OFSTED gave me outstanding feedback based on one of my Computing lessons and specifically praised me for the use of progress sheets like this. It can also be used as a scheme of work for your own delivery. You can instantly see what has been covered, when, and what needs to be taught next. Interestingly, if short-notice cover needs to be arranged, you can use the progress sheet to provide an overview of what needs to be delivered. There are two parts to this download - the PDF, ready to print, and the editable PPT file that you can use and disseminate as you wish. This 19 page document took several hours to complete and I feel that it is value for money. I would appreciate feedback on this.
