Welcome back Teachers! – Computer Science Vine



Over the summer I have been spending some time making a few resources ready for the computer science change over. One of the things which I have been working on is Vine videos. I’ve only made 5 so far but I want them to be available to my students during revision sessions. The idea is to remind them about some of the techniques we use in lessons.

I must admit, I have been an avid viner for a while. I had never thought about using it in a lesson until I saw an American teacher using it to complain about her day. I thought that it could be used in a much more efficient way. What if we were forced to teach things in 7 seconds. It really makes you think about what you’re going to say in order to get your point across. Not…. like… this little essay I’m writing here.

I am going to continue updating this Vine channel for me and for the general public and feel free to refer to them or use them for inspiration. Here are 4 of the videos below.

I’m looking at doing this as an activity to get my students remembering terms. I will post any vines that they develop in the future.
