Greenfoot Tutorial for WJEC Unit 2 On-Screen Test

Working with other schools recently through my lead practitioner work with GwE, the concern was raised that there are not enough resources that adequately fully support the Greenfoot task in the on-screen test for the Computer Science GCSE. I am currently teaching this to my third cohort of students and can honestly say that each year I have tried a different way of approaching it. However this year I am adding in some extra assessment for students to undertake this task in a controlled manner in the hope of giving them a more realistic experience of a Unit 2 exam. As a result I have produced a set of video tutorials that are hopefully easy to follow for students and that they can learn in a more purposeful manner.

Having worked through the Ice Breaker task that was the scenario for the 2015 WJEC exam, students can proceed to work through the Chase task (WJEC 2016) to see if they can apply what they have learned.

The resources are online here in PDF format that include links to the video tutorials and links to the scenarios needed.

If required, Greenfoot can be downloaded from here.
