Summary - 2019 Edition

The unit is subdivided into six learning hours including an end-of-unit assessment spread across six lessons in order to fit with most school timetables. It is a theoretical unit covering section 1.2 of the Cambridge IGCSE® 0478 / 0984 and O Level 2210 Computer Science specification. The lessons cover data transmission and error detection with imaginative and engaging activities. The Internet is comprehensively covered with three lessons on its function, the principles of operation and key aspects of security. HTML structure and presentation is covered with a practical lesson to create a simple web page using HTML and CSS script. In the final lesson students sit an assessment test comprising questions similar to those found on the IGCSE exam paper.
