Summary - New: 3rd Edition

This is a theoretical unit covering the necessary basic knowledge to use computers safely, effectively and responsibly. Pupils begin by looking at file management and security. The unit then moves on to e-safety (cyber-bullying, phishing etc.), and online profiles to give pupils a better understanding and awareness of using social media. The functionality and operation of email and search engines and how to use them effectively are covered, and a final lesson includes a multiple choice test on the contents of the unit and basic computer use. This might form part of a baseline assessment for new pupils if taught early in year 7.

What people say...

First year of using your resources and they have been a godsend.  Keep up the good work.

Andrew Clarke. Head of Computing and Business, Holbrook Academy

The key strengths of the materials are in their simplicity - you have the content pupils need to know, simply, attractively presented and then a well designed worksheet to test it. The worksheets look excellent and very effective as a tool to cement the learning.
