This outstanding classroom resource contains a variety of 8 short, focused activities designed as an introduction to early computer modelling for foundation, primary age and special needs children. My Modelling Toolkit 1 includes exercises that encourage children to make choices, predict outcomes and solve simple problems and has been structured to cover introductory-level ICT requirements through simple modelling of real and imaginary scenarios.
These activities can be used to illustrate how ICT can be applied and developed across other areas of the curriculum and are linked to the National Curriculum's Literacy and Numeracy Strategies, as well as an ideal resource for use with an Interactive Whiteboard. Teachers can use this program to cover the requirements stated in QCA ICT Unit 1A: An introduction to modelling, as well as the new integrated tasks.
Additional materials include lesson plans, complementary activity sheets, extension ideas and assessment sheets.
