During every lesson I give the children five questions to answer at some point during the lesson. These questions enable the children to hone their Internet Research skills, provide them with information about influential figures in the world of ICT (yes I still use the term ICT rather than Computing) and possibly more importantly give the the children something to do if they are ever waiting for any reason.
The children will receive Tokens for answering these questions and if they answer all five correctly they will “Unlock” the “ICT Icon” for that lesson, earning themselves an ICT Icon Trading Card such as…
The intention is that the children will aim to collect these cards and will be rewarded for collecting the most.
I am thinking about adding a score system Top Trumps style, with categories such as Influence and Innovation.
