With the prospect of ICT Sats looming closer, it would be foolhardy not to develop and assess specific core skills in a structured manner.

eurodio's LightBytes Plus interactive software for teaching core basic skills in ICT is a revised and updated version of the original LightBytes used by many schools across the UK.

This new version incorporates many features including a full sound option, user-friendly screen layout, attractive graphics and lively animation. The LightBytes Plus program is fully integrated with support materials including a comprehensive teachers' guide, colourful pupil book and photocopiable master worksheets - a complete, stress-free ICT solution in 11 units. It covers a complete range of ICT skills and each unit is structured to give hands-on examples of each application or procedure, and includes much guidance. At the end of each unit there is a test to check pupils' understanding.

LightBytes Plus allows them to navigate through activities that build up ICT skills and understanding. The focus is on "fun", with a simple, easy-to-follow structure where capabilities and knowledge are built progressively with frequent checkpoints and tests.

During 1999-2000 I taught KeyBytes (KS3 version) to Years 7-8 students. I met some of them again as sixth formers and complimentary comments abounded about the course. Enough said
