|Section Title||Primary information||Description and Notes||Suggested resources|
|Lesson Length||The expected lesson length will be approximately one hour||
Some variation possible.
Assessment Level 1
|Students||The lesson is suitable for KS3 and KS4 students||Since this is a new specification, the lesson is suitable for Year 7 to 9 students and differentiated by outcome|
|Overall Focus||The focus for this entire block will be in developing a data collection project and the students need some assistance in their data collection.||Students who are able can get on with their system to collect the required data, others will need some assistance in ways to do this.|
|Key words||application, file format, portability, open source, proprietary, standard, SMART, error correction||These words need to be reinforced throughout the series of lessons|
|Assessment||Evidence here will be student's own work and assessor observations|
|Key Questions||Some questions to get learners thinking about the topics||Students will need to be gathering their data now and making sure that the data is of a good quality.||How do you make sure the data is correct? How do you build into the system a way to check the integrity of the data? What do you do with bad data if you detect it? How can you avoid this problem though your design?|
Students should have chosen a data collection project, but some might still need help in how to frame the project. What are some of the methods needed for them to work through the project and get something out of it.
|If you are using the Learning Machine learning system, students can add their comments and material to this site as evidence of their growing understanding. The site, if used consistently, will show progression via charts of activity and outcomes.|
|Teaching and Learning Elements||
Students need some idea about what errors to be looking for and possibly some way of eliminating them at the inut stage. The methods to achieve this will depend on the type of data. If the data is text based, then careful question design will help here, making sure questions are clearn and unambiguous. If it is numerical check, get them to build in checks such as looking for @ elements in email data, or patterns for something like a post card. If audio input, make sure the recording is not over saturated or the levels too high which will cause distortions.
Use some of the student's ideas and examples to flesh out a solid understanding before progressing
Question students about how and why they did what they did. Check for understanding.
|Lesson Structure||Possible structure||
|Homework||Get students to write 3 common errors in data input||Students can vary their homework depending on their level of understanding||Get students to document their experience on their portfolio system for assessment|
