Before the lesson
- To design a system for turning a school into a smart school
Pupils should be taught to:
- Select, use and combine a variety of software (including internet services) on a range of digital devices to design and create a range of programs, systems and content that accomplish given goals, including collecting, analysing, evaluating and presenting data and information
- Understand computer networks including the internet, how they can provide multiple services, such as the world-wide web, and the opportunities they offer for communication and collaboration
Pupils needing extra support: May need access to the video about smart buildings to help them to come up with ideas. They may also benefit from working with a more confident partner so that they can share their ideas on how to improve the school.
Pupils working at greater depth: Should be encouraged to carry out their own research, e.g. collect data (non-private), scout the school for locations of sensors, research devices, methods of data transfer, or conduct interviews.
