Summary - New: 3rd Edition

This unit covers some of the legal safeguards regarding computer use, including overviews of the Computer Misuse Act, Data Protection Act and Copyright Law and their implications for computer use. Phishing scams and other email frauds, hacking, “data harvesting” and identity theft are discussed together with ways of protecting online identity and privacy. Health and Safety Law and environmental issues such as the safe disposal of old computers are also discussed. Safety is discussed outside the realm of e-safety which is covered in greater detail in the Using computers safely, effectively and responsibly unit. Assessment for this unit is by means of a multiple choice test.

What people say...

[The KS3 units are]..."very useful especially as most of my colleagues are new to computing. Its great having a starting point and guidance on assessment. Theory at KS3 is a new concept for most but it is actually going down well and adding purpose to the lessons."

Mr J Pritchett. Head of Computing, Brookfield Community School

Wow, that is what you call service. (Clearly you know when teachers do their lesson planning for the week!)
