Mr Britland's computing curriculum

Rate this resource

This resource provides an overview for a lesson where students in Year 7 choose a blogging platform (if they are allowed to choose for themselves this comparing and contrasting the various offerings could be a lesson in itself), and set up a blog. They are also given various prompts to help with evaluating what they have done and guidance that they should publish an article at least once per week, as a form of reflective homework. Depending on restrictions in place in different schools, specific blogging platforms could be chosen, the school itself could host the blogs, or a VLE such as Moodle could be used to handle this. Links to e-Safety and lessons on managing their digital footprint would probably need to have been undertaken before doing this.
