PC3 Strings

Teachers and students are encouraged to use these resources as platforms to create their own resources, as forms of assessment and in particular as reflection pieces for learning portfolios. The resources are designed specifically to be used by students to record artefacts and reflect on their learning, in particular html and pdf resources.

The Python Lessons and Tasks are designed for students to learn how to program in a practical and task driven style, both individually and collaboratively. In addition, where appropriate, students can undertake a Computational Thinking challenge and a block based coding challenge on editable html platforms, assess themselves with eTask Worksheets, and support and challenge themselves with Python video lessons.
