Welcome to ETC Educational Technology Connection (HK) Ltd!
Model Pack with sensor/input/output
Designed by Teacher's and tested by Pupil's to save you time when teaching Visual Computing at KS3/KS4 (US equivalent - Grades 6-8/9-10).
The Lesson in a Box Visual Computing pack for micro:bit, available separately here, is a complete set of parts & teaching resources to enable successful cross-curricular lessons at KS3/4 (US equivalent - Grades 6-8/9-10). The subject packs come with a detailed lesson plan, cross-referenced to: class slides, workbooks/worksheets, checklists etc., technician’s notes and where appropriate, AFL guidance with answers and plenaries.
In developing this box we wanted it to be affordable, useful and robust enough for teachers to use again and again. The resources cover not only the KS3/KS4 (US equivalent - Grades 6-8/9-10) specifications but also personal development by encouraging pupils to view traditional STEM activities as having value across their curriculum.
The teaching resources included in this pack are, we hope, set out in a ‘teacher-friendly' way, with sufficient detail to enable you to ‘lift’ them, photocopy them and run your lesson(s) with minimal fuss straight out of the box, and/or to edit and personalise the resources if you so wish.
Each lesson includes:
The activities in The Lesson in a Box Visual Computing pack utilise the BBC microbit, the Kitronik ZIP Halo HD for micro:bit and a clippable motor driver board designed specifically for these types of activity. The advantages of the microbit are that, while being easy to use, it is feature packed and it can be coded with languages that suit every ability level.
On the USB you will find full teaching resources for 13 lessons and 2 enrichments as follows:
