KS3 ICT (Information and Communications Technology)

Intent

Technology has become a major portion of everyday life. People in nearly every career are required to have some knowledge of computers and software. Information and communications technology (ICT) is used by organisations for a variety of reasons, it helps organisations function more efficiently so they can improve.

One of the main aims of ICT is to help students to become competent and confident users who can use the basic knowledge and skills acquired to assist them in their daily lives.

We hope to prepare students for the world of tomorrow. We aim to help learners to have an open and flexible mind. This will help them to adjust to the inevitable future changes.

We aim to equip learners with the appropriate social skills required to cooperate with fellow ICT learners for a more productive learning experience. It empowers students who are unable to use this technology outside the school premises by ensuring sufficient access to those students. Through this, it will also ensure equity among all learners, as they will all have the same opportunities to use the ICT facilities in school. Another social objective of ICT is to facilitate good communication between the students, thus promoting better social understanding

We also hope to assist students to appreciate the beauty and diversity of culture through our projects. We also aim to help students become well-cultured citizens of the modern world.

 

Knowledge and understanding

We hope to introduce students to a range of hardware & software applications to create appreciation of technology in everyday life by the development of a tailormade curriculum specific to needs of Larches High School.

ICT aims to assist students to grow personally by facilitating different methods of learning.

Our goal is that the impact that the integration of ICT within KS3 will have a large impact across the whole school curriculum.

All year groups projects are appropriately structured/differentiated according to the groups profile.
