    Hi

    I am looking for recommendations of software packages for my GCSE and A level, I want interaction, fun and engaging technology. Can anyone recommend any packages?

    I haven't found anything for the reformed a-levels yet. I used to use the zig zag resources for A-level, they seemed really quite good with the E-C students, but they are worksheet based.

    For GCSE there are lots of stimulations and activities listed here

    The quality is variable, but there are many which can be useful for engaging students.

    At A level, while again simulations etc are useful. I would start to look at how IT is used in the wider biological world. Data analysis using everything from Excel to Matlab is wide spread as is image analysis (microscopic/macroscopic /moving and still) etc. .

    Talk to you local labs, universities and see what they are up to. Ask to go for a visit
