School Experience Part 2 of 2

During my time spent at the school, I observed two different lessons all of which are related to computing. These were ICT basic skills for form 1 kids and Computer Studies with form 3 students. The first lesson does not have an actual syllabus and it is there for the students to learn in a fun way how to use some programs on a computer. During the lesson, they were being thaught how to use Microsoft PowerPoint. The teacher was asking them if they knew what certain functions where and most of them knew what they were. They were enthusiastic about this and when the teacher gave them a practice presentation to do they were eager to start doing it about their favorite hobby. The kids started searching on the internet for information and pictures to fill up their presentation with.

Another lesson that I saw had the students practice binary subtraction. Many of the students kept on askiging questions about different things related to the question. Some of them did know what to do and worked quietly while others were helping each other out. It took quite some time for the students to finish a couple of these sums (close to an hour if I recall correctly) but at the end most had managed to do it. The teacher explained it clearly mutiple times to ensure that everyone understood.
