Summary - New: 3rd Edition

This unit will enable pupils to create a complete app with full takeaway functionality on an iPhone, Android, Windows or Blackberry smartphone as well as a desktop web browser in class. Pupils will plan and implement their own projects using skills from a teacher demonstration app which creates a guide to the Periodic table including image galleries, video, interactive maps, and web links. Pupils will also be able to program extensions to their own apps using the built-in language Blockly. The unit will be assessed using an assessment portfolio and the completed apps can also be made available for parents and teachers to view online.

What people say...

PG Online material for KS3 has been instrumental in helping me transit from ICT to Computing with a department of just two. Cutting down work load in planning SOW and resources. All material have been adapted to suit our school with ease and the pupils are really enjoying the programming elements.
