“Get Creative with Data” is a pioneering syllabus for use in the KS3 computing classroom, created by the David & Jane Richards Family Foundation in collaboration with teachers and industry experts. The lessons encourage young people to explore data science through hands-on activities and project based learning, and equip them with essential skills to help them lead and succeed in the digital age. Learners will explore engaging topics including machine learning and artificial intelligence, practical data science skills, STEM careers and many more.
The complete set of resources provides teachers with a full year’s worth of lesson materials, broken down into six modules; these can be taught in any order, or as standalone units as preferred. Lesson packs include lesson plans, slides, worksheets, homework activities and assessments.
The balanced syllabus gives equal importance to: - Core computing skills, as measured against the National Curriculum - Essential “soft” skills, as measured against the Skills Builder Framework - Workplace readiness, as measured against the Gatsby Benchmarks
