Year 8 – Lesson 6 – Sharing

Curriculum KS3 Unit Lesson

In this final lesson, learners will take a quiz that will assess their understanding of the computing systems concepts that they have encountered throughout the unit.

In the second half of the lesson, learners will move away from the technical aspects of software and hardware that have been the focus of the unit and learn some of the key concepts of open source software. They will explore this through a discussion about some common Scratch practices that they are already familiar with ( sharing, ‘seeing inside’ projects, and ‘remixing’), and a reflection on the implications of these practices.
