BTEC TA DIT Component 2 LAA Theory & LAB Spreadsheet Skills

(1)
I have trialled the teaching of BTEC TA Digital Information Technology during 2017/2018 and have produced the attached ‘placemats’ to ensure that students understand the key skills required for LAB/C and the knowledge required for the research task in Component A. Either print double-sided, laminate or simply display/view on screen. On side A is the LAA theory looking at sectors of industry. On side B is the LAB/C skills in Excel. I have used them laminated, 1 between 2 and supported the Excel element with short tasks that teach students the skills as listed in the specification. I hope these can be of help to you and your students. Thanks for taking an interest in this resource.

The structure of the test is based on the KS4 model which I am introducing from the outset in KS3 as 'Computing de Facto standards'.
