Many thanks to Helen Jenson from Dartford Grammar School for Girls, for kindly contributing the following resources:
Programming workbook for BASIC
This twelve page workbook can be used to introduce your students to simple programming.
It can be used for KS3 and KS4 students who are new to programming.
It uses the free JustBASIC programming language.
This is an excellent PowerPoint tool which can be used to help teach students how to write HTML code. It can also save their web pages.
Students write their code in the left-hand section and can view the results in the right-hand side. They will love to see the changes they make taking place right in front of them.
As it is written using VBA, it requires macros to be enabled and will probably flag it as having a potential virus. We have thoroughly checked the file and it does NOT contain any viruses.
When you first try to use the PPT you will probably encounter a file/path error 75 and it will attempt to debug the code.
The reason for this is that it seeks to put a file on the C:\ when you press the 'click here' button. If the C drive has restrictions (which most school networks are likely to have) you get the error 75.
To change it you need to change C:\ to whatever drive you have access to. To make the change just press ALT + F11 to go into VBA mode. Then change the line marked:
webtest = "C:\HTMLHelper.htm" with a drive name that works for you.
ALSO there are two further references to a drive name that should be changed - one in each of the procedures for the other buttons.
