7 CAB “Community Spirit” Several written activitiesActivity 1-3 ReviewsActivity 4: EvaluationSources TableThese are EASY marks. You are all more than capable to shine here key words at the start and end of this ppt.
9 What do we need to focus on? Catch-up time?Activity 3?E-newsletter?Spreadsheet model adaptations?
10 Querying a database, self-assessment DATABASE TASKQuerying a database, self-assessment
11 Lesson Aims 1. Collect work for moderation and feedback 2. Understand the ‘music databases’ task betterRecognise the benefits of filtering and arranging informationLearning Objective:
12 Building a QueryQueries help us reduce the amount of information shown in a database.We can remove irrelevant informationand sort our information how we like.
13 How to build a query 1. Query Design (on the ‘create’ tool ribbon) 2. Add database to query3. Select which fields to show (Rapper, worth, albums)4. Choose a field to sort by5. Specify a criteria to sort by. (>100)
14 CourseworkRelate the discussion to the “Music Databases” task of your GCSE Coursework. Keep this in mind when completing the Activity 1 review.Complete your report and make sure the finished version is saved as a .pdf file.
15 Task Requirements 1. Save a copy of the database to your folder. 2. Add 3 new songs released in the last 2 years.3. Add the websites where you sourced your information from to your sources table4. Use a query to filter your database by year or genre5. Create your database report, complete with logo6. Record feedback received by your ‘test buddy’7. Reflect on feedback and make appropriate changes8. Complete the review for this activity, going into detail and justifying your decisions
17 Points to rememember. Please watch your spelling and grammar. “I done this already” is an acceptable colloquialism for an informal self-assessment, but if you write like this in your coursework you will lose marks :(Finally, it’s GCSE not “GSCE”... !
18 Where are your Sources Tables? It has come to my attention that not many of you have been updating a Sources Table.Not using a Sources Table may lose you up to 10 marks of each activity… which may be the difference between a B and a D!
19 What the exam board says... “Students must acknowledge all their sources - even those they decide not to use. They should justify their choice of sources and explain the reasons for using them.All sources should be fully referenced. Simply stating “The internet” or giving Google as the source is not sufficient.”
20 For each item in your sources table.. Information source: What is the URL or name of book?P or S: Primary or secondary?Description: What is this information about?Explanation: How/why/where or [why didn’t] you use this information?
21 As well as the sources table... You need to list any media assets you looked at in your research in the assets table.This includes music, images, video, graphics, banners etc.For example - the three songs you added to your music database should go here.You don’t need to fill in “details of permission” unless you re-used the actual media.
22 Assets tableIf you are aiming above a C, you need to show understanding of using other peoples assets.This applies to the Logo (1), Digital Advert (2), Banner and E-Newsletter (3) tasks.Often people borrow other peoples work, and use it - as long as this complies with copyright law.
23 Definitions... free from copyright Royalty-free: reuse is unlawful reuse subject to conditionswho made this media?Royalty-free:Copyright:Creative Commons:Attribution:
24 FOCUS ON: Sources Table: 1. sources for investigation 2. sources for music database data3. sources for spreadsheet model dataAssets Table:1. examples of logos / graphics you used2. songs for music database3. examples of radio adverts / music used
25 REMEMBER!: 1. Use Microsoft Word, not Wordpad. 2. You need a range of sources (several for each task)3. You need both primary and secondary sources for high marks5. Show evidence that you understand copyright in the assets table6. All data from your spreadsheet model should be backed up by a referenceHow do you know that the clown charges £55 an hour?
28 Developing the Model Today we are going to be looking at Activity 2. You should use the concepts we will be discussing over the next few weeks if you want to get the highest marks for this task.
29 Step One: Understanding the model The idea of the model is to predict possible profit (money for the charity) and losses, using different scenarios of what your event will involve.How do we work out profit?Profit = Income - Loss (Costs)
30 Step Two: Profit and Loss Each “Consumables” table (section) on your spreadsheet could contain two columns, headed “Income” and “Costs”At the end of each section, you should work out the totals for each of these for this part only.This will make working out total income, profit and loss at the end much easier.
31 Step Three: Ideas for your model Your model should reflect the decisions you made in Activity 1: Investigation. However, you can always go back to your Activity 1: Review and add new ideas (remember to put the sources of your information in your sources table)You get the most marks for designing your own model. By copying the example given in the CAB, you are limiting yourself to a maximum “C” grade!
32 Formula practice How do we multiply? How do we add? How do we divide? How do we subtract?How do we do a 2 or 3 part SUM?How do we add up multiple numbers?How do we round up?
33 TASK:Work on expanding your model to include more variables.
35 .rtf files - don’t use them! I recommend you change all your .rtf (Rich Text Format) files to Word Documents.Remember you can solve the issue of the tables going off the edge of the page by changing the page layout -> orientation to landscape.
36 Recap of last weekThe two most fundamental things we discussed last week were:Your event model must have a reason for existence - to calculate forecasted profit / lossIt must be able to test different scenarios using variables (e.g. dropdown lists)It must use formulae - unfortunately using another calculator will get you 0 - no rewardable content
37 By the end of the lesson: Make sure:1. Your dashboard has variables to test different scenarios (dropdown lists)2. Your model works out total profit and loss.3. Your static data is on your additional worksheets.
39 General RemindersSpreadsheets are made up of labels (burgers) and values (200 or £5.60).Values cannot contain letters like ‘p’ or ‘pack of’ - why is this?Values must be numerical so calculations can be added using formulae.
40 Example ModelEven if you have completed the example model 100% accurately and everything works, you cannot achieve above a C grade.For the higher marks you must implement advanced functionality - this is what I want to show you today.
41 General RemindersSpreadsheets are made up of labels (burgers) and values (200 or £5.60).Values cannot contain letters like ‘p’ or ‘pack of’ - why is this?Values must be numerical so calculations can be added using formulae.
42 DashboardYour dashboard is your user interface - similar to what is featured on a website, software program, phone app, cash machine or any digital product.The aesthetics of your design must meet target and purpose.
44 Use the yellow boxes to change the model’s variables. Consider..Your typography.Make sure your design is readable, accessible and appropriate.It is helpful to include instructions on how to use your model. You may want to colour code your dropdown lists, for example.Use the yellow boxes to change the model’s variables.
45 Conditional formatting One recommendation from the CAB is that you use conditional formatting to colour code your event. This is an easy way to gain high marks!By now you should have your total profit and loss cells complete - if not just use temporary values for this exercise.The event is making a profitThe event is making a loss
46 For extra marks...Make your model display messages based on the results of a certain scenario.For this you will use the =IF function.See the worksheet for additional info on this.
47 Think you are finished?There is a lot of work to do if you want to achieve a B or above!Please collect the event model checklist from the front - can you tick everything off?
48 For the remainder of the lesson: Implement conditional formatting to show profit / lossAdd instructions on how to use the modelAdd comments to annotate where you have used advanced featuresFacilitate the =IF function to display messages
50 Reminders . Your spreadsheet must be completed with the minimum of: dataformulaevariablestotal profit/lossThis must be completed by the end of the week as we will be moving on to the ‘Recommendations’ report task next week.Tomorrow will be spent on Activity 2 review...
51 What is the difference between these words? DefineExplainJustify
52 Today’s lesson … will focus on completing your Activity 2 review. As the marking criteria says:look for evidence in the Activity 2 review, Sources Table, and the model itself.Full marks can still be attained for a model that is less than perfect.
53 In essence: As long as you write about your work.. it’s ok! So much of this coursework is based on reviewing and evaluating your work.You have a great advantage here because you’re obviously highly literate so you shouldn’t find this much of a problem.
54 Today’s lessonComplete activity 2 review on the work you have done so farYou must go into detail for each section - remember to define , explain and justify your decisions.Continue with your spreadsheet modelUse the CAB and the resources available to you in the shared area
55 Using Lookup Tables To make your model A* standard! GCSE ICTUsing Lookup TablesTo make your model A* standard!
56 Recap So far this term we have looked at: 1. Making your model represent your investigation2. Updating your sources table to show where you got your data3. Giving your model a purpose - calculate total profit / loss4. Adding dropdown lists to the dashboard to allow the user to make choices
57 Recap =IF(H23 < 0, “Warning - event will incur a loss!”, “”) So far this term we have looked at:5. Linking worksheets6. Using conditional formatting to highlight red if loss, green if profit5. Using the =IF function to display a warning message if the model generates a loss=IF(H23 < 0, “Warning - event will incur a loss!”, “”)
58 Today’s work Continue working on your event model. MAKE SURE: 1. Values in your cells do not include letters such as ‘p’2. You have formulae to work out all calculations3. Your dashboard includes dropdown lists to give the user variables4. Your model works out total/profit loss5. You have used conditional formatting6. You have used the =IF function to display messages7. You have added =VLOOKUP sensibly.
59 The =VLOOKUP functionUsing “lookup tables” is quite complex, but will show you have the technical ability to get the highest marks.Lookups are used when you want to search for information in a table, and can be used to condense data down to a smaller set.
60 ActivitiesA good way to use =VLOOKUP in your model is with your activities.On an extra worksheet, you could have a list of ten different activities - how much they will cost you and how much (if any) income you will make from them.On your dashboard - you present the user the option to choose 3 of these activities for the event.=VLOOKUP should be used in conjunction with a dropdown list.
61 =VLOOKUP(E11, myTable, 3,FALSE) The VLOOKUP function has four arguments.=VLOOKUP(E11, myTable, 3,FALSE)This is the name of the function - all formulae and function in Excel begin with =1. This is what you want to search for - in this case it will be your dropdown list2. This is where you want to search - this will be the table on your extra worksheet
62 =VLOOKUP =VLOOKUP(E11, myTable, 3,FALSE) The VLOOKUP function has four arguments.=VLOOKUP(E11, myTable, 3,FALSE)3. This is the column in the table you want to get the data from. 1 will be the source of your dropdown list, so choose 2 or 34. You will need to search for an exact match so set this to “FALSE”
63 Using a Lookup table for your activities Add advanced variables to your model:1. Add data for a choice of 10 activities on an extra worksheet.- What activity?- How much to buy/rent- Will you charge for people to have a go?2. Incorporate options to choose three of these activities on your dashboard- Predicted number of people to have a go? (dropdown)- How much cost? How much income?
64 Please raise your hand if... You used Fireworks or Photoshop to create your LOGO
65 Activity 1 - fulfilling the criteria to get the highest marks. GCSE ITActivity 1 - fulfilling the criteria to get the highest marks.
66 The criteria says….You must gather material from a range of different sources, so far your research is limited to the internet. Sources of information include personal experiences, television, websites, books, maps, diagrams, photographs, leaflets, newspapers, podcasts, expert opinions, .You must make decisions about what information is relevant/appropriate to your investigation. In your sources table / Activity 1 Review, show discrimination of your research - you must include all sources of information even if you decided they weren't appropriate.
67 What you should do - 20 minutes 1. Update your sources table to include a range of different sources for your investigation.- books.google.com- youtube.com- personal experiences2. Show discrimination of your research- blogs- yahoo answers- wikipedia- tabloid newspapers
68 Your tasks: Add 3 books to your sources table. Add 2 newspaper articles to your sources table. (surveys/opinion polls to back up your questionnaire?)Access these through the internet, but list them as physical sources.Remember you can add sources that you didn’t end up using - this gets you into the highest mark band
69 The criteria says….You have limited information regarding your search techniques - please make sure you discuss: types of search engines, keywords, search techniques, boolean operatorsYou have limited information regarding your selection techniques - how did you judge which information to use? How did you know what sources were valid / reliable / unbiased?
70 What you should do - 20 minutes 1. Show screenshots of different search techniques. Compare search engines. Use boolean operators - AND, NOT, “ “ etc. Discuss using specialist search engines.2. Show discrimination of your research - talk about validity, bias, reliability, reputable sources etc.
72 RecommendationsIdeally by now you are in a position to start the second task in Activity 2, the recommendations.As the CAB says:
73 You must prepare some recommendations for the organisers You must prepare some recommendations for the organisers. Make sure that you use examples from your model and that you explain your recommendations.your model must fulfil its purpose, be able to test different scenarios and calculate profit / loss to do thisThe recommendations will be sent to each of the organisers to be viewed on screen.My suggestion is to format a Word document nicely then to use “Save as PDF” - this is a standardised file format for digital reports
74 The recommendations must include: the logo and straplinesuggestions for the eventvalues from your model to support your recommendationscharts to illustrate your findings.Remember you will not be there to answer any questions. Make sure you explain your recommendations clearly.
75 Example I propose the food dishes to be served should be: Fried chicken, chips and burgers.These dishes are very popular in the local community, as discussed in the survey ‘Popular Quick Eats in Lewisham’ in the Lewisham Recorder (12/04/2010). Furthermore, burgers can be affordably sold at £3.00 per item, but due to minimal costs for this food they will generate a sizable profit for the charity. Please see the chart below to show the income / costs / profit from the sale of this item across a range of predicted sales:
76 Sensible graphs Bar charts are used to compare data. Line graphs are used to show trend.Pie charts are used to show proportional data.
77 What is wrong with these charts/graphs? Add a sensible title “A bar chart to show…”Add labels for both axis
78 What is wrong with these charts/graphs? Pie Chart Comparing Income, Costs and ProfitIncome, costs and profit are not proportionate!They are not pieces of the same pie!!
79 Things to remember Compose in Word but export to PDF (Adobe) Use sensible graphsWrite in clear, fluent English.Back up any claim with data generated by your modelThe more variables / possibilities to test different scenarios, the more in-depth your recommendations report will be.Use superlative languageUse professional business formatting.
80 Lesson 11/12 - Logo & Digital Advert GCSE ITLesson 11/12 - Logo & Digital Advert
81 Digital AdvertThis assignment is non-specific, so you can choose what digital tools you think are appropriate. You have the options of:PowerPointAn automated (timed) presentationWindows Movie MakerA compilation of images and video
82 Things to rememberIf you are using WMM - you should be adding video (appropriate use of software).Use to rip video from Youtube.Import this into movie maker to include in your advert.
83 Things to rememberIn both routes, you should still be adding images - these could be any photos to do with the local community for example.Use for ‘free to reuse’ imagesImport/insert them into WMM/PowerPoint to include in your advert.
84 Using AssetsRemember - it is OK to reuse other peoples work as long as you list this media in your assets table (below your sources table).You must show an understanding of copyright here:Youtube rips - permission from ownerWikimedia - creative commons license
85 Reminders 1. Please make sure your typography is professional. 2. Spellcheck all your work3. Your advert should include information based on your model (e.g. ticket price)4. Don’t ‘overuse’ transitions / animations5. If using WMM, your final version should be exported to a compressed video file format (e.g. .wmv)6. Use /
86 LogoI would like to give you the opportunity to have another go at the logo activity.This is for several reasons -
87 Logo Technical skills since Year 9 have improved You missed out on the ‘analysis’ stage - affects sources tableSome logos look like posters or CD coversStick drawings & professionalism?Missing criteria from the brief
92 Logo assessment criteria: 1. You have used appropriate digital tools and their features effectivelyPaintPowerpointFireworks- why? Vectors
93 Logo assessment criteria: 2. You are aware of the properties of logos, such as the fact they have to be transferrable (able to be resized)Questions to ask yourself:Is your text too small?Does your logo pixelate when it is made bigger?How does your logo look on your database report?Do you have a coloured background - if so why?
94 Tasks1. Choose 5 logos to analyse. Add these in your sources table. Discuss their properties in your review.2. Recreate your logo using Fireworks and Vector tools - this is so it can be resized.3. Save an alternate version of your strapline in a separate image - this can be used for the track list & recommendations report
96 Term 1 SummaryWe have covered these practical activities so far this term:Event ModelRecommendations ReportLogoDigital AdvertMusic Database

117 Earphones Hands up if you have earphones! Please ensure you bring these into school with you each lesson starting from tomorrow.This lesson - work on written content / script / other activities.
118 AnalysisAs with the logo task, a lot of you missed out on this section.You must show you have reflected on other’s work by listing examples of radio adverts in your sources table.How did these examples influence your own work?
119 Your scriptYou script should contain all the details about the event, be professional and appropriate for target audience and purpose.If you haven’t completed this yet - make sure you include the words “SAVE THE DATE”.Save your script as a document in your development folder.
120 Main activity #1Find 3 examples of radio adverts (Youtube, BBC etc.) and add these to your sources table.Evaluate these and discuss how they influence your own work (or how they don’t!)Remember the more quality sources you add the more marks you gain. Remember showing discrimination of research gets you an A!
121 Finding music to use...It is in your best interest to use ‘royalty free’ music - I have uploaded a sample of these to the shared area.Please make sure you cite these sources in your assets table!
122 DemonstrationsTo get the highest grades you need to show you can use Audacity’s features effectively.Effects demonstrations:Fade in / outReverbChange pitchExperiment with these and make sure you comment on them in your review!
123 Music advert’s checklist Think you are finished?Audio clip must be in a finalised format - .wav, .mp3 or .oggDoes your radio advert sound professional?Does your script contain all relevant details about the event?Is your clip ‘around 25 seconds long’Have you used fade-ins/fade-outs?Have you made use of any other effects?Are all elements of your sound mixed properly?Have you added music to your clip?Is your review complete, showing acknowledgement of copyright and discussing technical features of Audacity / radio adverts?Have you updated your sources table listing examples of radio adverts you listened to?Have you updated your assets table listing any sound you ‘repurposed’ in your clip and showing acknowledgement of copyright?

129 Activity 3 You must finish the remainder of the coursework: Animated bannerTimeline storyboard for bannerE-NewsletterE-Newsletter storyboard / wireframeUpdate sources table and assets tableActivity 3 ReviewFinal Evaluation
130 Starter Activity: - 10 minutes Find 3 examples of e-newsletters to add to your sources table for research.Discuss how (or why they didn’t) these influenced your own work.Comment on the credibility / professionalism of the e- newsletters you find.validitybiasappropriatenessrelevanceprofessionalismreliabilitycopyrightdiscrimination of research
131 Lesson Objectives Implement a navigation menu to link pages Storyboard ideas to show design process
132 Storyboarding - complete retrospectively CAB/Links/E-Newsletter_TemplateDevelop a set of storyboards for the e-newsletter. This should include an overview storyboard and separate storyboards for each section.The overview storyboard should show the structure of the e-newsletter including:page layout, specifying the location of sections and key assetsdetails of navigation and links.The section storyboards should be detailed enough to show clearly what the sections will be like, including:background and layoutfont colours, styles and sizesdescription of content needed such as text, images, animation, etc.any links.
133 Today’s Agenda: Continue working on your E-Newsletter 2. Make sure your storyboards are complete for both tasks in this activity3. Work on your Activity 3 review, using as much technical vocabulary as possible.
134 Animated BannerYou must amend this with any updates to your logo / strapline / event details - it has to be consistentYou need to complete a ‘timeline storyboard’ - template is found in the CAB.
135 Animated Banner BriefYou must create an animated banner for inclusion in an e- newsletter promoting 'CommunitySpirit'.The animated banner must:be approximately the full width of the e-newsletter x 150 pixels deepinclude your logo and straplineinclude a suitable title for the e-newsletterrun continuously.
136 Assessment For the highest mark band: The student has used design tools to clearly show what each screen will be like and the pathways through the product.They have commented on and justified important design decisions.The student has developed the specified outcomes, using appropriate content and features effectively.The interactive product has an effective user interface and control.The student has reviewed and modified their work throughout its development, using feedback from others to improve the outcomes.
137 Possibilities: Adobe Flash Adobe Photoshop If you are confident in Photoshop…I personally do not know the software Art/Graphics students might
138 Using software ‘effectively’ Use TWEEN.You shouldn’t be moving layers/objects frame by frame - this is a crude way to do animation!
141 LESSON AGENDA 1. Have a look at your animated banner. Does it meet the criteria?Have you used features of software effectively?2. Complete the storyboards for the banner and E-Newsletter.3. Continue working on your E-newsletter.
142 Lesson 24 - Progress Check II - Common issues GCSE ICTLesson 24 - Progress Check II - Common issues
143 ACTIVITY 4 - REVIEW Complete evaluation for Activity 4. Template and guidance can be found on the links
144 Common Major Issues1. File formats2. Model3. Recommendations4. Sources Table5. Music Database6. External Documents7. Digital Advert Confusion
145 File formats Banner - must be animated .gif format Audio clip - must be exported as .wav or .mp3Digital Advert - must be:.ppt / .pptx if presentation.wmv / .avi / .mpg if video.pdf / .jpeg if poster
146 Model Many models are not accurate. Income = all money taken in at the eventCosts = all money spent for the eventProfit = money left after costs are taken off income!
147 Problems with most models One burger costs £1 to buy.I will sell one burger for £3.I predict 1000 burgers will be sold.Burger income = £3000Overall income = £3000Overall costs = not including total costsOverall profit = £3000
148 To avoid this...Make sure you have a ‘total costs’ column for food and drink.Make sure this is subtotalled, and this is added into ‘overall costs’.If you are using separate sheets - LINK the cells containing the dropdown lists.They should change dependently on each other.
149 Recommendations DO NOT copy the exemplar. Recommendations can only be made once your model is complete and fulfils its purpose!Please format as a report (not using size 30 font).
150 Sources Table Not comprehensive enough. Discrimination of research. A wide range of sources - books, articles, videos, discussions, blogs, questionnaire etc.Comment on validity / bias / reliability of sourcesCross referencing researchNot comprehensive enough.Should include sources of:research about charitiesresearch about eventscosts for purchases/hires for modelanalysis of logosanalysis of event advertsanalysis of radio advertsinformation for music databaseanalysis of animated bannersanalysis of e-newslettersresearch to back up recommendations
151 Assets Table Some sources mixed up as assets! Discuss copyright permissions if needed.Creative commons license / copyright / royalty freeMention ‘educational context’ - fair use policy.Some sources mixed up as assets!Should include discussion of:graphics / photos used in logographics / photos / videos / music used in digital advertmusic / sound effects used in audio clipgraphics / video / photos used in e-newslettergraphics / photos used in banneryour own creations - audio clip, logo etc.software used in schoolwebsite builders (e.g. cooltext.com)CAB-provided materials - the music database , templates
152 Music Database In review you should include 3 screenshots. One of database showing 3 records added.One of track list report.One of query design with criteria used to make tracklist
153 Music DatabaseMusic Database - you must show evidence of filtering database.E.g. database - “students at Chaucer”what’s wrong with this?NAME:YEARGROUP:SCHOOL:Ben10ChaucerSimon11TonyAlbert9John8Chris7
154 External DocumentsAll evidence of work needs to be discussed in Activity 1 / 2 / 3 review. NOT in other documents.If you have used other documents please HYPERLINK them - otherwise the examiner will simply ignore this work!
155 Digital Advert Confusion From the CAB:”You must create a digital advert that promotes 'Community Spirit' to local charities.”
160 Extra FilesAny ‘extra’ files or documents must be hyperlinked from your Activity Reviews if you want them to count as evidence.
