Python Posters – Ready for Computing?

leaflet hold So as part of next year’s computing curriculum. I mentioned briefly that I would be planning on producing some resources to help other teachers. Here are some useful resources to help you and your students. In our classrooms we are using these plastic displays which allow you to change what goes inside them. The idea is that we have about 20 of these around the classroom with different pieces of code in them. We also change them up for different units of work and it gives you and your teachers hints.

howtohelp For each unit of work, I will be producing leaflets / posters which help with the delivery of the topic. There are multiple copies around and it allows the students to be more independent. When my students can’t remember how to do something, they can get up and find the piece of code that is relevant to the task they’re working on. I have produced my first set and they have been used before we broke up from school. I thought I would share them with you so that you can make use of them in some of your own lessons.

The idea of these python help sheets are that they can help you but also help your students. If your student asks you a question about a variables or some logic behind a question, you can have these near you to refer to. I hope they’re helpful.
