ICT

Young people will use Information and Communications Technology (ICT) skills throughout their lives — in commerce and industry, in science and research, in entertainment and leisure pursuits — and it’s a rapidly changing spectrum.

In school, ICT forms a vital part of every pupil’s developing knowledge, understanding and experience. Pupils need a broad range of experiences that reflect real-world uses of technology. Therefore, they need support to acquire and develop the skills necessary to become informed and responsible users of ICT.

All teachers have a responsibility to provide learners with experiences of using ICT appropriate to their subject.

End-of-Key-Stage Requirements
At the end of each Key Stage (in Years 4, 7 and 10), assessment with reference to the Levels of Progression in Using ICT must include a numerical level.

For Year 10 pupils, this involves schools:
using a range of assessment tasks;
using the task approval process;
giving pupils opportunities to carry out Using ICT tasks and record their evidence in e-portfolios;
using this evidence to assign a level to each pupil;
and forwarding the assigned levels to CCEA for moderation.

Cross-Curricularity
ICT is not a recognised Area of Learning (a subject) within the Northern Ireland Curriculum. Instead, all subjects have a statutory requirement to contribute to pupils’ acquisition and development of Using ICT. There is explicit reference to this in the Statement of Minimum Requirements for each Key Stage 3 subject.

This means providing our pupils with opportunities to acquire, develop, understand, demonstrate and apply ICT concepts and processes appropriately in a variety of contexts. ‘Using’ the skills will involve opportunities to transfer knowledge, understanding and skills in meaningful ways across the curriculum.

In St. Mark’s, ICT is a taught subject to Year 8, 9, 10 pupils and GCSE pupils.
