    Help! I am struggling highly to find any good resources or ideas for teaching topics of IT3.
    I have spent the last term working from the WJEC A2 Level Essential ICT book but I need to make my lessons more exciting, add more creativity etc.
    I have a class of only 5 year 13 students so trying to motivate them in a 2 hour ICT lesson is not always easy.
    Does anybody have any good links, lesson ideas or effective resources to make more creative learning?
    Thanks

    I have just finished creating a load of "chalkboard" style videos for the IT3 modules and they will be up on Teach ICT in the next few days/weeks. However they won't be free but there's well over 8 hours of material on there and I am pretty happy with it all. It's a bit more advanced in presentation to the stuff that I have created so far for the AS course in the resource bank on here (well it has pictures and tables rather than just my scribbles and narration), but I am sure you get the idea of what it's all about form the link below.

    I will post a link back on this thread when it is finally available, but confess once again that it is not a free product and accept the "don't you advertise your wares on here" criticism that I am sure some might feel. Still as far as I am aware there's not really anything else out there yet for the WJEC course.

    Oh yes forgot to mention it should be out as an iphone/ipad app too within a month, as rather fortunately I have a year 12 who is rather handy at that sort of thing....
     
  6. Thank you for these videos. They are very good indeed and I will be certainly purchasing them for my school. I can see how these high-quality resources will raise standards and promote self-paced learning both in school and for homework.
