The Media - Bias in the media KS3 lesson

(0)
Before this lesson the teacher will need to do one of the following: Either give each group a physical newspaper, or print out the top 10 articles from BBC news, the guardian website, daily mail website etc. It is very effective to use relevant stories from a particular day or week, although students are seldom up to date with the news on a daily basis.

35 Computing and ICT lesson ideas for KS3

(1)
35 ideas (starter and plenary included) fully aligned to the KS3 curriculum. Sometimes we all need a little help with a lesson, or want something “out of the box” that can get going in seconds. These are outstanding ideas, and a full lesson can be built from them in minutes. Some are suitable for a few minutes, or can be used as mini-sessions within your lesson. The idea is to save you time with the least preparation time possible. Topics covered include: Computational abstractions Key algorithms Programming Boolean logic Hardware and software Instructions within a computer system Data storage Creative projects Digital artefacts E-Safety

Ice Breakers and Ice Breaker Back to school set for KS3 Classes

(0)
Fully resourced ice breaker games. Use these to help students introduce themselves to each other (and to you). There are 9 activities, some need no preparation, others need cards to be printed. You are free to pick and choose, but of course you can contact me for support if you need it. In order to use the App you would need to organise a set of iPad (or let student use or share iPhone or iPod as avaliable), but it is not essential to be used for the lesson.

GCSE Computer Science 9-1 – Revision carousel

GCSE Computer Science 9-1 – Revision carousel

7 Resources
For the AQA GCSE 9-1 Specification, and also suitable for OCR J276. Designed as a revision carousel. Print out the worksheets before the session starts. The students can then move around the sections in groups. I run these as open book sessions and allow the students to revise / look up material on their phones / talk to try to solve the work as necessary. Moving around the stops You can tell the students that they have 10 minutes for each stop. If you pursue this strategy you can be flexible with the amount of time that the students have at each stop Work and then present Each section has quite an amount of sheets, and you could choose to put them all out and the students present what they have learnt after a 15-20 minute session. Alternatively, the students move around the stops, and at each one write on post-it notes any queries that they have. You could then address these at the end of the session.

Personal thinking test - tutor time!

(0)
Personal thinking test - run through with your tutor group to see their results! I would recommend this for Late KS3, KS4 and above (although you could try it with younger students). So give out Personal thinking test, and get the students to answer the questions one by one. They then add uptake results. For fun they can then plot it on the grid (PersonalThinking.pdf). They can see which personality type they skew to. They explain the differences from PersonalThinkingTest.docx of give the students the sheet to read.

Dijkstra's Algorithm for Computer Science

(0)
Dijkstra’s Algorithm The way I would run this is to talk through the motivation for the algorithm from the presentation, and give the terminology worksheet to be filled in (answer in the presentation). We’d then work through the brute force worksheet. I might then run through the example, then give them the simple graph to fill in. Than we would work through TaskGraph1 for the graphs. Then I might get them to either code, or come up with graphs for them to solve in small groups or in pairs. Included: TPT presentation Labels to fill in worksheets to give structure for the students to fill in answers TaskGraph1 3 graphs to run Dijkstras on. AnswerGraph1 and 2 -answers for the graphs Brute force worksheet and brute force worksheet answers
