Most students love YouTube. This is an attempt to harness the power of YouTube to learning GCSE Computer Science. The playlists are organised into the six main topics: 1. Problem Solving 2. Programming 3. Data 4. Computers 5. Communications and the Internet 6. Bigger Picture There is also a playlist for the NEA :(
Within each playlist videos have been ordered according to the sequence of Learning Outcomes, as published in the official specification. I have tried to include at least one video for each outcome. In some cases there are several videos for the same outcome, for the following reasons: - the outcome covers a lot of material - there were several competing videos and I couldn’t decide which was the best one!
- very few of these videos were originally published with a view to teaching GCSE Computer Science students (although some are specifically for this audience.) The content therefore may not match exactly with what is required by the exam board - it may include more content or less than required
- I have not watched every second of every video, only got a flavour of most to check its suitability. I would be very pleased to receive advice as to perceived usefulness/suitability of these videos.
- The playlists should not be seen as being definitive and are subject to regular change, subject to video reviews and new videos etc.
Level: All GCSE students
Duration: Haven’t added it up but quite a few hours!
Teaches: Attempts to cover all course content
And please feedback comments and suggestions to me on how you find this resource.
