Communications Technology Course They are intended for teachers and. lecturers who are delivering the Course and its Units They should be read in. conjunction with the Course Specification and the Unit Specifications for the Units. in the Course, Course Support Notes for National 2 Information and Communications Technology Course 1.
General guidance on the Course,The aims of the Course are to enable learners to. develop and apply skills and knowledge across a range of technologies. use equipment and software appropriately,use a range of applications. communicate effectively, Course activities also provide opportunities for learners to develop generic and. transferable skills in computer literacy including searching and retrieving. information to inform thinking and decision making and problem solving. Learners will also have opportunities to develop skills in working independently. and in collaborating and working with others, In addition learners will have the opportunity to develop generic and transferable. skills for learning skills for life and skills for work including literacy and thinking. skills in a contextualised engaging and enjoyable way. Progression into this Course, Entry to this Course is at the discretion of the centre.
This Course is suitable for learners who want to develop practical skills in using. technology in day to day living with an awareness of health and safety issues. associated with its use It is suitable for learners with a general interest in. information communication and technology, This qualification may be suitable for learners who have successfully completed. qualifications in creative arts computing or related areas at SCQF level 1. Experiences and outcomes, Experiences and outcomes from the early and first level ICT to enhance learning. section within the Technologies curriculum area may provide an appropriate. basis for doing this Course The following experiences and outcomes are. particularly relevant, exploring software and technologies to discover what they can do. using technologies to present ideas thoughts or information. using technologies to communicate with others,using technologies to record experiences.

Hierarchies, Hierarchy is the term used to describe Courses and Units which form a. structured progression involving two or more SCQF levels. It is important that any content in a Course and or Unit at one particular SCQF. level is not repeated if a learner progresses to the next level of the hierarchy The. skills and knowledge should be able to be applied to new content and contexts to. enrich the learning experience This is for Centres to manage. Relationships between National 3 and National 2 Units. Some National 3 Units can substitute for the National 2 Units and so contribute. to the Course Award, The table below shows the relationships between these National 3 and National 2. National 2 Unit title Substitute Unit from National 3. ICT Applications Information Solutions, Alternatively a National 3 Unit may provide some evidence which can be used for.
a National 2 Unit but cannot be a substitute for it Where this occurs. teachers lecturers should refer to the Outcomes and Assessment Standards of. the National 2 Unit to determine what additional evidence is required. Course Support Notes for National 2 Information and Communications Technology Course 5. Approaches to learning and, The purpose of this section is to provide general advice and guidance on. approaches to learning and teaching which can be used for any of the. component Units within the Course, Effective learning and teaching will draw on a variety of approaches to enrich the. experience of learners In particular a mix of approaches which provide. opportunities for personalisation and choice will help to motivate and challenge. The skills based focus of the Course readily lends itself to a variety of. approaches to learning and teaching which reflect those used within broad. general education and the values and principles of Curriculum for Excellence. Learning should where possible be relevant to the learner s everyday life their. overall learning programme and or work and leisure Teachers lecturers could. also consider interdisciplinary and cross curricular approaches to learning and. teaching and explore how extra curricular activities or the personal interests of. learners could be included and recognised, Learners should be given the opportunity to use their normal mode of. communication and have access to the appropriate resources for support where. they would normally be available in real life situations in which the activity is. being carried out, The distribution of time between the various Units is a matter of professional. judgement and is entirely at the discretion of the centre Each Unit is likely to. require an approximately equal time distribution although this may depend on. the learners prior learning in the different topic areas learning and teaching. methods adopted and the design of the Course,Sequencing and integration of Units.
The timing and sequencing of the delivery and assessment of the Units is at the. discretion of the centre However learning and teaching approaches which. provide opportunities to integrate skills wherever possible are suggested. The Units can be taken as part of a cluster of Units within the Course framework. In this case it is suggested that the mandatory Unit ICT Applications could be. delivered first as this is a good introductory Unit providing the learner with. opportunities to develop skills and knowledge in using a range of commonly. available applications, Having completed the mandatory Unit the learner then has the opportunity to. develop a particular aspect focus or theme through their choice of optional Units. This could be primarily personal communication collaborative working and. interaction with others through the Communications Applications Unit and the. Internet Applications Unit, Alternatively the Multimedia Applications Unit and the Working with Digital. Images Unit provide opportunities for the learner to use technologies in creative. and imaginative ways, Course Support Notes for National 2 Information and Communications Technology Course 6. Learners also have the opportunity to take Units independently and therefore. Centres can combine Units to suit individual learner needs for example linking. to other curriculum areas and or delivery patterns within the centre. This flexibility means that study programmes can be developed which provide a. pathway for each learner to focus on their particular strengths and interests and. to work with others and or on individual activity as appropriate and which allows. integration of Units in respect of learning teaching and assessment. This not only allows personalisation and choice for the learner but also allows the. Centre to develop deliver and record each learner s progression and. achievement through the Course, When developing the approach to learning teaching and assessment and the. time allocation for each Outcome it is suggested that teachers lecturers consider. the following issues, the range of equipment technologies and applications available to the centre.
the resources available to the centre, the extent to which cross curriculum and or interdisciplinary working can be. offered for example across creative arts performance arts. the prior experiences and achievements of learners. the needs of learners, The following examples provide illustrations of how possible learning pathways. might be developed, Course Support Notes for National 2 Information and Communications Technology Course 7.
