New Principles of Computer Science Course

If you’re preparing for the Unit 1 Principles of Computer Science exam then you need to check out the brand new course on KnowItAll Ninja.

The BTEC Level 3 Computing is a fantastic course for students looking to develop a career in fields such as software development, cyber security, systems analysis, web development & games development. In order to achieve on this course, you’ll need to tackle the core principles of computer science. This includes subjects like:

  • Computational thinking
  • Standard methods and techniques used to develop algorithms
  • Programming paradigms
  • Types of programming and mark-up languages.

This requires you to really get to grips with understanding common programming practices, including pseudocode, and languages like C#, VB.NET and Python.

Preparing for the Unit 1 Principles of Computer Science exam has become much easier now though, thanks to KnowItAllNinja. Our new course will guide you through every topic of the unit specification for the BTEC National Computing course.

There are 42 individual lessons, each containing detailed text explanations of the topic, summary presentations and a dedicated quiz. Check out one of our presentations below:

In addition to this you’ll also have access to the key KnowItAll Ninja features:

  • Course Progress Tracking – easily see your progress in your revision with clear marking of completed tutorials and interactive tests to check your understanding. Teachers can track their students progress through the course too.

  • Achievements for Success – receive awards for your successful completion of tests and courses to help drive your revision forward.
  • Leaderboards for Comparing Progress – easily compare your progress against your friends on leaderboards. Compete to gain the most experience.

These e-learning tools have shown to improve student engagement and help students to progress during their own self-directed revision. It’s a key part of what makes KnowItAll Ninja a great tool for schools and colleges across the country. The website is also fantastic to use on mobile so you can revise on the go using your smartphone or tablet.

Unit 1 Principles of Computer Science Revision

Principles Of Computer ScienceThis course will offer greater detail in revision than any other revision resource for the Principles of Computer Science exam, than anything else you will see on the market.

You’ll even see code examples in Pseudocode and/or C#. There will also be code examples added throughout in VB.NET and Python very soon.

However, it’s not just for Unit 1 of the BTEC Level 3 Computing specification that this new course will support. Students studying unit 4 Programming of the BTEC Level 3 Information Technology course will also find this new e-learning course of great benefit, covering much of the unit content.

BTEC National Grade Statistics Released

The BTEC National grade statistics from the 2018 BTEC National cohort have been released by Pearson, but what do these results show us?

With the changing of the guard from the 2010 BTEC National to the newer 2016 BTEC National being somewhat stunted, due to concerns over the examinations and the constant extension to the final enrolment date, have schools & college’s been moving to the new qualification?

Also, have the results of BTEC students been significantly affected by the addition of external examinations to the BTEC?

What Can We Learn?

Looking at the BTEC National results, some obvious things stand out:

  1. Nearly 62,000 students studied the 2016 BTEC specification. This is still dwarfed by the 232,414 studying the 2010 specification, but most colleges that did switch would still have had their second years on the old specification. That being said, a lot more college’s have stuck with the old specification than move to the new one.
  2. High grades on the new specification are on average much lower than the old specification. D*-D grades on the Extended Certificate make up 34.3% of the grades achieved. The equivilanton the 2010 spec had 45.4%.
  3. That being said the new specification actually enjoys a greater pass rate and high grade results increased by 7% from last year on this level of the qualification. U results went from 8.4% down to 2.9%. Possibly as a result of the new N grades added to the exams.
  4. The 5 most popular BTEC qualifications are business studies, health & social care, applied science, information technology & sport. This holds true on the new specification as well as the old.
  5. There are still some very severe gender differences within BTEC studies with Information Technology & Sport leaning heavily to male students and Health & Social care towards Female. Applied Science does have a very even split and Business, while having a higher number of male students, is more even than the other subjects mentioned.

The BTEC Level 2 qualification results have also been released. These students were amongst the last cohort we’ll see from key stage 4 students, though the course continues to be run in colleges. There was small fall in both number of students and in the results. It will be interesting to see the effect of the new BTEC Tech Awards that are being taught for the first time this year.

The most popular BTEC First qualifications were the sport, health & social care, business, performing arts and information & creative technology qualifications.

Where From Here?

Principles Of Computer ScienceObviously a lot of schools and college’s are holding off on the switch to the new specification, I believe many hoping they’ll be able to continue running it until the T-Levels are released (piloted in 2020 with main release in 2021).

That’s probably a little optimistic and we’ll see more and more switch. Generally I think the new qualification brings a lot of benefits to the students and is worth the switch.

To help with the delivery of the 2016 BTEC Level 3 qualifications KnowItAll Ninja has courses for the BTEC National in Information Technology in units:

Of course we also have courses for the BTEC Level 2 Information & Creative Technology, covering:

There is also a soon to be released course for the BTEC National Computing qualification covering Unit 1 Principles of Computer Science. This will be followed with a course for Unit 2 Fundamentals of Computer Systems later in the academic year.

The Principles of Computer Science course is expected to be released in early December.

I also have courses in development for the BTEC Tech Award in Digital Information Technology and the BTEC Tech Award in Enterprise. So, keep an eye out for these qualifications coming this academic year.

All these courses will enjoy the presentations, well explained content, key topic videos, quizzes and gamified learning you’re used to from KnowItAllNinja.com.

Also, keep an eye out on the Facebook and Twitter pages as more and more free content is being added to them all the time.

Free Cyber Security & Incident Management Resources

We all know there has been a lack of official Cyber Security & Incident Management resources provided by the exam board. That doesn’t mean there aren’t a wealth of great resources out there though.

Cyber Security and Incident ManagementObviously, KnowItAll Ninja‘s dedicated Unit 11 Cyber Security & Incident Management course is a fantastic tool in maximising your student’s success. It covers every topic in the BTEC Level 3 Information Technology specification for Unit 11 with clear explanations, presentations & quizzes.

However, there are many other free resources out there that can help to supplement KnowItAllNinja.com along with your excellent teaching. I’ve gone through a huge number of these and identified some of my absolute favourite free cyber security resources.

Pearson Unit 11 Learner Workbook

If you’ve missed it, while there hasn’t been a paid revision study guide or workbook from Pearson, there is a free learner workbook downloadable from the BTEC website.

You can download this by visiting the BTEC 2016 Information Technology page on the qualifications.pearson.com website, or clicking this link which will take you directly to the page to download the workbook. You should see the top link is the BTEC National in Information Technology: Learner Workbook (Unit 11).

While it is a huge shame that we haven’t seen official published materials, such as a student book or revision guide, this is a fantastic resource none-the-less, and completely free. There’s also a similar learner workbook for Unit 14 IT Service Delivery.

Crash Course Computer Science

One of my absolute favourite video series for teaching is the Crash Course Computer Science series on YouTube. These videos are interesting, informative, and a good length for in classroom use.

While not Cyber Security & Incident Management specific, there are a number of videos that cover related topics, including:

Check out the video on cyber security here:

Cybrary

If you’re looking for a website to study a wide range of Cyber security topics to a high standard, then there is no better place than Cybrary.

For completely free (though you do need to register with the site) you can study beginner, intermediate & advance cybersecurity topics. They even have many courses that will teach you the content of many professional qualifications in related areas, like Comptia Network+ and Comptia Security+.

These video courses are quite long and are not the best tool for in-class use, but if you’re looking for assigning extra study for outside of class then this could be very useful.

Some great courses include:

Those are just a few examples though, there are hundreds of relevant courses on the site. It’s a great choice not just for students but for a teachers own personal development.

Microsoft Virtual Academy

Much like Cybrary, the Microsoft Virtual Academy offers a wide range of courses that often cover professional qualifications (in this case Microsoft ones like the MTA). However, Microsoft Virtual Academy covers more than just cybersecurity.

These courses are also free, though if you want to track your progress you’ll need an outlook.com email account (which is free to sign up for).

These are also generally not too much of an in-class tool but are great for outside of class teaching. Some of the best videos include:

Again, there are many more courses that can go into quite advanced topics and are great for either extra study or for teacher personal development.

Stem.org.uk

The stem.org.uk website is one that you may well be aware of already as they are “the UK’s largest provider of education and careers support in science, technology, engineering and mathematics”. Their resources section is a fantastic tool for teachers and you can find a lot of cyber security specific teaching resources on the site.

For example:

The stem.org.uk site does take a little digging through to find the best materials, but with a little effort, you’re sure to find some great resources to help your students in their Unit 11 Cyber Security & Incident Management external assessment.

Cyber Security Challenge UK

Cyber Security Challenge UK - Cyber City GameThis website, which is actually linked to in the Cyber Security & Engineered Solutions link above, provides educational games to learn about Cyber Security. These are absolutely fantastic tools for learning a range of threats and prevention mechanisms in a fun and easily digestible way.

You can access them on the https://www.cybergamesuk.com website. I highly recommend them.

We all know the benefit of using games in and outside of the classroom for learning, and these have been created by people with good understanding of Cyber Security issues. Cyber City is a good starting point, but other games cover specific topics in more detail.

Other Links

The suggestions on this page are just a few useful resources for delivering Unit 11 Cyber Security & Incident Management for the BTEC Level 3 IT qualification. There are many more, both free and paid that you can find.

So, with KnowItAll Ninjas Cyber Security & Incident Management course, and a few of these resources, I am sure you’ll have a wealth of tools available to make sure your students succeed. If you have anymore you use that you’d like to share, please contact me and I’ll update this post.

New Cyber Security & Incident Management Course

Get studying for the unit 11 Cyber Security and Incident Management controlled assessment with this brand new course on KnowItAll Ninja.

If you’re studying the BTEC Level 3 Diploma in IT, or the BTEC Level 3 Extended Diploma in IT, then Unit 11 Cyber Security and Incident Management is a mandatory unit. However, there was never any official textbook or revision guide released for this externally assessed unit. I know this was a major cause of concern for many teachers.

Thankfully, you don’t need to go into the delivery of this unit with no resources to support you. Our course covers every topic of the BTEC Level 3 IT specification for this unit, providing you text explanations, quizzes and presentations to help teachers deliver the unit and students to study and revise.

Thi obviously follows on from our Unit 1 Information Technology Systems and Creating Systems to Manage Information revision courses, making KnowItAll Ninja a hugely valuable resource to your school or college.

This brand new Unit 11 course contains 35 lessons that will provide students with the background theory, as well as the practical skills to help them achieve their potential.

You’ll also have access to the key KnowItAll Ninja features:

  • Course Progress Tracking – easily see your progress in your revision with clear marking of completed tutorials and interactive tests to check your understanding. Teachers can track their students progress through the course too.

These e-learning tools have shown to improve student engagement and help students to progress during their own self-directed revision. It’s a key part of what makes KnowItAll Ninja a great tool for schools and colleges across the country.

Unit 11 Cyber Security and Incident Management

Cyber Security and Incident ManagementThe lack of official resources for the Unit 11 Cyber Security & Incident Management controlled assessment is a bigger concern than most units, as it is externally assessed with a 10-hour exam condition activity. These controlled assessments have proven to be a real stumbling block from many students too. However, it is my belief that KnowItAll Ninja can really make a difference in your student’s success.

What is especially good news is that, if you’re a current subscriber to KnowItAll Ninja, then this brand new course is available completely for free. Just log in to your existing account and you can visit the course and access it right away.
