Notes for teachers

  • These resources were developed by computer scientists at the University of Aberdeen, as part of a public engagement grant provided by the EPSRC.

  • The resources are available for use without charge for educational purposes.

  • They are designed for use with children aged 9-13, to assist in understanding language (especially homonyms and homophones) and ICT.

  • Slides 2-27 are intended to be delivered by an adult as a presentation to children.

  • Slides 28 – 33 should be printed off as worksheets for the children. Print them off double-sided, so that the hints are on the back of each work sheet.

  • If you have any questions or comments about these materials, do get in touch! Our email address is [email protected]
