10 Awesome weeks of Jr. High technology Class for students of all interests from animation to coding! This is a genius resource for 10 very unique web activities, all free, for the teacher in need of some compelling computer science content, but perhaps without the time to custom design activities and web quests. I love these hand made resources, and so do my students!! About the author Danny Hauger is broadcaster, songwriter, and teacher that releases free music at DannyHauger.com and has produced engaging standards-based educational content in Social Studies, Technology, and Religion at the HaugerHIstory Teachers Pay Teachers Store. When I was tasked with replacing a departing technology instructor with no notice, I needed solutions, so I created my own! Using dynamic tools from around the internet for a variety of interests to be met in interactive activities. This short computer science course resource took me a month to create and guided students through 10 weeks (or longer if you choose to extend and expand on them.) All you need is an internet connection. (Google Docs is a plus) Students will work with art, graphic design, coding, gaming, and more and these pages are ready to print and distribute, or to give digital access to students for completion. These tools require no extra cost, or money, but it does help if they have Google accounts for creating documents or signing up for digital services. Its a great variety of technological skills and experiences to interest many different student areas of interests. Students will learn (hands-on) a lot about many subjects while gaining valuable skills to learn in computer science and across various curriculum. This unit plan of computer science also teaches the importance of organization, planning, and good study skills with tools like google Calendar, EdPuzzle, Code.org, and more! Ready to print! Suggestion – have each student start a Powerpoint or Google Slides and put screenshots or what they learned on a slide for each week as a unit project! These are ready to print and distribute, or you can edit/adjust to your liking.

In terms of curriculum content, computer science is at the core of many of these lesson plans, in which students are taught the principles of computation, how digital systems work, and how to put this knowledge to use through programming. Building on this understanding, students are equipped to use information technology to create content using a variety of software. This book also ensures that students develop digital literacy – able to use, and express themselves and develop their ideas through ICT – as active participants in a digital world. There is a particular focus for example, on Digital Citizenship and E-Safety, so for every year group, dedicated lesson plans are provided for these topics. Various apps and other resources are recommended for the school setting. The most important objective of this book however, is to help ensure that students get a thorough grounding in the use of digital technology itself. This is an exciting time to teach Computing & ICT.
