Acknowledgements & Publishers' Websites
The following sources are gratefully acknowledged for sharing
useful content to support the teaching of Computer Science and we are happy to recommend the use of their materials to others.
Technically it's possible to use the J276 MOOC without purchasing any additional resources, however it is strongly recommended that teachers and students make use of one additional printed or online resource as well.
Free Evaluation Copies: It's worth noting that some of the publishers listed below are happy to provide teachers with one complimentary printed of their student textbook for free to enable teachers to judge which is the best resource to purchase. Some provide some sample content online for evaluation purposes.
Which is the best? If you are considering spending your budget on published materials - why not make use of the evaluations/samples before committing to a purchase and seeking opinions of teachers making use of these resources either in the Teacher Forum here on J276 MOOC, the GCSE Computing Facebook group, #CASchat on Twitter on the Computing At School discussion forums.
