Transcript of PED1017 Assignment Guidance

Assignment Title
"Evaluate approaches to develop computational thinking at KS1"
You have been provided with a number of research articles and supporting documentation throughout your computing sessions.

60-69 band
‘You have accessed some further sources of information beyond those presented in module sessions but your engagement with these is sometimes limited. E.g. texts are merely used as sources of quotes.’

How many references do I need in my bibliography?

PED1017P Computing Assignment Guidance
35-39 band
‘Any reference to source material is superficial and does not demonstrate that you understand the key points made by the author(s) of the module’s identified essential texts.’

50-59 band
‘You have made reference to some relevant sources of information but mainly those presented by tutors in module sessions. ‘

How to approach the assignment
Focus on the use of
unplugged activities
how they can be used to
develop computational thinking

This does not just mean discuss a lesson plan or idea, it means
critically evaluate
how computational thinking can be developed through the use of unplugged activities.

As a result of your discussion you should also consider the
importance of developing computational thinking
at a young age. This is
a separate question and should be integrated into your discussion.
Words and Structure?
There is no specific word requirements for the structure of your assignment, but it should have a clear introduction, main body and conclusion.
One copy of your written assessment must be submitted in accordance with the requirements set out in your University Handbook. You should submit your work electronically via the appropriate dropbox in Learning Edge

Submission Date: Sunday 13th May 2018 by 4pm (the dropbox will open closer to submission date)
Return Date: 10th June 2018 – 4pm


Important information required is on Learning Edge in the PED1017P Computing Assignment information and dropbox folder on LE.

Please check all of this first before emailing your question/s

The assignment title is intended to deepen your knowledge and understanding for an important concept in Computing - Computational Thinking.

You must meet learning outcome 3 to pass this assessment:

"Evaluate current issues, approaches, theories or resources associated with learning, teaching and assessment of computing in the primary curriculum."
The important question is: How well am I using my research?
