Mr Clarkson Talks About Computers…

Jr Network Geek…

Originally uploaded by Cassey <– Useful AS Computing resources

I have 3 (count them, three) AS Computing students. Due to timetabling constraints I teach them for 1 hour a week during school hours and 2 hours a week after school.

Due to other commitments, one student misses every other 1 hour session and a different student misses virtually all of the 2 hour sessions (so he’s essentially doing a full AS on one hour a week).

In order to provide some more assistance I’ve started creating some simple videos. Production value is nil (a cheap camcorder, a tripod and a mini whiteboard), editing is limited to adding a few titles at either end and the script is made up as I go along.

Hopefully they might be of some use to others too, and if you do spot any glaring errors, then do let me know…

  1. My AS class when I was at school had 7 pupils in if I recall, including me. Mind you, when I was at school the *only* Computing course they offered was the AS. No GCSE, no A-level. It was back around 1990, which makes it even more bizarre just to give what was – at the time – half a course rather than committing to a 2-year one. From what I recall back then AS courses were pretty new.

    Still, our teacher was an utter geek and I managed a B in one year despite doing it alongside three other A-levels. And now look at me – I’m teaching it!
