Well, it’s that time of year again. Coursework gone, exam classes all but finished and thoughts turn to KS3 next year. It’s about time we made sure we covered the basics of Flash, I’d like to do some more targeted graphics work in conjunction with the art department and in Year 9 we’re replacing the Theme Park project with a Grand Designs project.Design three houses in Google Sketchup, build a spreadsheet model to look at costs and present an interactive brochure in Flash. Should be a challenge, but more interesting and relevant for where we want pupils to go. By far the hardest thing is fitting everything into the time available and trying to balance moving forward with the inevitable gaps created by shuffling a unit from Year 8 to Year 7 (effectively missing an entire cohort). Still, anything beats marking coursework!
