Computing activities +

In every Computing activity, content is made as clear to understand as possible, with visual and audible reinforcements for every answer. It is the combination of large text, clear voice-over, colourful graphics, and fun music that makes EducationCity.com’s Computing content appeal to all learners.

  • Great for formative assessment, with typically 8-10 questions asked on a specific topic
  • Scores are saved into Success Tracker which can provide a comprehensive pupil report at the end of the year or term
  • Learn Screens helps pupils to gain an insight/overview of new Computing topics in a mini-tutorial
  • Printable Activity Sheets and resources give pupils something to work on independently in or after the lesson
  • Time saving lesson plans to aid with planning 

Computing Topic Tools +

  • Open ended tools for use by teachers on interactive whiteboards
  • Tools offer teachers the freedom to explore a topic at a level and pace perfectly suited to their pupils
  • Default to appropriate difficulty level according to which academic level it is accessed from 
  • Prepare now and use later with Save and Open
  • ‘Random’  buttons within tools allow teachers to generate random scenarios/data – time saving and great for teacher led questioning

Student Tools +

  • Open-ended virtual manipulatives designed to let children create and explore
  • Cover the parts of curriculum where freedom of expression, exploration and outcome are an integral part of the learning goal.
