I have finally updated my ICT curriculum.
Here is the link: Mr Britland’s ICT Curriculum V1.1
The updates are:
- The strands and aims
- Copyright and version history added.
- Amended the My App project (Year 7) – Students now create their own App
- Amended the Computer Hardware/Computing History Project (Year 8)
- Amended the Programming: Python project (Year 9). Now called Raspberry Pi and Python and now has new learning objectives
The aim of my curriculum is to develop confident digital citizens who understand the power of their digital world. It uses accessible, challenging and engaging projects that empower students and promotes the productive use of ICT.
I want students to feel able to ‘tinker’ with technology, to understand how it works and how to make it work for them; they should feel in control.
All students should have the opportunity to write their own programs, produce their own Apps or create professional quality digital products.
Students should feel safe when using technology and the web. They must learn what their rights and responsibilities are, as well as how legislation such as The Protection from Harassment Act and The Computer Misuse Act can affects them.
Finally, our young people must understand how to utilise the power of the cloud. Understand what services are available and that the cloud can be a powerful collaborative tool.
I hope you find it useful.
