Having taught ICT to year 9 this year as part of my timetable, i have been quite impressed with the enthusiasm and ability of these students.

They have really enjoyed 2 parts of the course. These are Google sketchup, and a youtube challenge that i set them as a team exercise. I think these 2 were the most popular as they allowed students to be creative, collaborative and they were different to the run of the mill. I think i only had 2 students out of 60 who had used sketchup before, so they were new and keen to learn, and the youtube challenge meant they could video things they were interested in, as the task was focused around how to get the most views.
