GCSE ICT ICT is an integral part of Studio School life and the core projects. All students will be entered for GCSE Science and will study two units with unit 1 being assessed through a written exam worth 40% of the marks and unit 2 assessed as practical project worth 60% of the marks: Unit 1 – Living in the digital world In this unit students explore how digital technology impacts on the lives of individuals, organisations and society. Students learn about current and emerging digital technologies and the issues raised by their use in a range of contexts (learning and earning, leisure, shopping and money management, health and wellbeing, on the move). Students develop an awareness of the risks that are inherent in using ICT and the features of safe, secure and responsible practice. Unit 2 – Using digital tools This is a practical unit designed to broaden and enhance students ICT skills and capability. They work with a range of digital tools and techniques to produce effective ICT solutions in a range of contexts. Students learn to reflect critically on their own and other’s use of ICT and to adopt safe, secure and responsible practice. They put into practice what they learn in unit 1 to support the work of the core projects.
