ICT - File Manager - IGCSE Edexcel Unit 6 Software Skills (1 of 11)

This is a 11 lesson SOW designed to tick all the boxes for Unit 6 IGCSE Edexcel when it comes to File Manager, Word, PowerPoint & Excel. There is still a bit left over (see ‘Advanced Unit 6 SOW) but it covers the bulk of it for these software types.
See the features of each/most lesson below – they have honestly been really effective in an International School in the UAE. Each lesson, or pair of lessons, follows a cross-curricular theme as well because I believe ICT is the perfect lesson for Cross-Curricular and if I get my students thinking about other issues as well as picking up valuable ICT skills – then I leave work a happy teacher.
A. Video Tutorials (Lessons 1 – 10)
B. Interactive Progress Checks (Online Quizzes with instant feedback (Lessons 1 – 8)).
C. Literacy , Numeracy and ‘Think’ Starters
D. A Cross-Curricular Theme to each topic
E. Stretch Questioning and Activities
F. Literacy mat
G. Lesson plan template.

This 11 lesson mini SOW has proved invaluable in covering seemingly basic, but often overlooked, skills ready for the Edexcel IGCSE ICT exam, Paper 2 (which covers unit 6).
