What is ICT all about?
UNIT 1: Living in a Digital World (Examination)
In this unit, students explore how digital technology impacts on the lives of individuals, organisations and society. Students learn about current and emerging digital technologies and the issues raised by their use in a range of contexts (learning and earning, leisure, shopping and money management, health and well-being, on the move). They develop awareness of the risks that are inherent in using ICT and the features of safe, secure and responsible practice.
UNIT 2: Using Digital Tools (Controlled assessment)
This is a practical unit. Students broaden and enhance their ICT skills and capability. They work with a range of digital tools and techniques to produce effective ICT solutions in a range of contexts. Students learn to reflect critically on their own and others’ use of ICT and to adopt safe, secure and responsible practice. They put into practice what they learned about digital technology in Unit 1.
What we learn in ICT
In I.C.T we learn to use various programs to accomplish an overall project goal. We learn to successfully make a website using web authoring software, learn how to present our ideas in a fashion suitable to a target audience and how to successfully plan a project to enable us to keep track of timings
