Lady Lumley’s School ICT Dept Aim:
"Competent and confident students focussed on learning, enabled by Information and Communication Technologies that are simple to use and work at home and at school".
There are two option groups, each of mixed ability.
The course is worth the equivalent of two GCSEs. You do one option - ICT - but two units - ‘Using ICT’ in Year 10 and ‘Multimedia’ in Year 11, resulting in an equivalent double GCSE equivalent grade.
The Summative Project Brief for Year 10 will start on the CiDA starter day - Tuesday 10th January 2012. Students will create their own detailed time-plan for doing this coursework in the remainder of Year 10.
We organised a very successful joint Y11/Y12 visit to Teesside University in December 2010 to find out more about possible courses and university life. We are going to follow this with a similar visit to Leeds Met University this year and we will rotate the two trips every other year in future.
IT2 is open every lunchtime for Years 10 and 11 to use. We use many of the tools on the school Fronter VLE including folders of files, forums and hand-in folders. Mr Lech and Mr Sharples are on-hand at all times and Y12 students run a support session after school on Mondays. In return, Year 10 students run the KS3 club during lunchtimes in Room IT3.
All links are on the Y10 Fronter home page including links to the Summative Project Brief, the moderator’s toolkit and the support notes.
Students should expect to have at least one home learning per week which should take approximately 45 minutes to complete.
Students need a memory stick and access to a computer with Microsoft Office at home. An external hard drive to back up all their digital subject work at home is proving useful to many students.
If you have any queries regarding the CiDA course then please contact your son/daughter’s teacher, Mr Sharples or Mr Lech through the school office or via email, csharplesladylumleys.net or klechladylumleys.net
