Gr8 Computer Science Teaching Ideas Number 02: Packet Tracer by Cisco and Duncan Maidens
This is the second blogpost in a series for the Facebook group Gr8 Computer Science Teaching Ideas.
Thanks to everyone who joined in to discuss PRIMM ideas. I am also indebted to last year’s CAS North East to be able to listen to Duncan introduce Cisco packet tracer:
My Y12s have worked through both courses and I am able to suggest how I will be splitting up the content for Key Stages 3,4 and 5 in the future.
If you are reading this as part of the Facebook post, I am very pleased to inform you that Duncan has joined the group, and I am sure will be able to answer any questions in the next couple of weeks. if he is reading this, then I would like to thank him for all his efforts in providing a great resource and saving me a great deal of time.

This is the third blogpost in a series for the Facebook group Gr8 Computer Science Teaching Ideas. Thank you to Emma Williams for this resource:
This unit of work is an introduction to Cyber Security. The NCSC kindly provided the materials for the Cyber Adventurers course and I adapted in order to facilitate learning in schools. These resources were produced as part of the NCSC Cyber Schools Hub – details here https://www.ncsc.gov.uk/news/uks-first-cyber-schools-hubs-announced
It is designed to showcase the varied roles and jobs that exist in the field. The course is designed for 11-14 year olds and can be delivered at any point in key stage 3. It can be run in a Cyber club or as a teaching unit at key stage 3.
The lesson plans are designed to include practical tasks. There is a unit assessment that has been developed in line with the Computing pathways framework which can be adapted to suit a schools. The lessons can be delivered as stand-alone lessons if required.
