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.

BTEC TA Digital Information Tech C3 Exam

BTEC TA Digital Information Tech C3 Exam

(0)
With students, prior to assessment, we run a walk-through-talk-through lesson, where using a visualiser, we talk through the questions and then the teacher handwrites the answer explaining how they structure it. This has resulted in greater confidence displayed by students in the following assessment. As we have multiple teachers, a solution is provided with possible answers so that there is consistency in guidance given to students. Following the assessment, in the DIRT lesson, we go through a modelled answer to again show students how the teacher would have approached the actual assessment and things they should have picked up on when reading/answering the questions. This assessment is based on students having completed: Modern technologies, Impact of Modern Technologies, Cyber Security and ELCE Wider Impact. Another paper is currently also available for the year below, where they have so far studied: Modern Technologies, Impact of Modern Technologies.
