Rationale

Not all tutors supporting learners with ICT are ICT specialists themselves. Therefore supportive links for
the tutor are given throughout. Some of the links are schools
-
based but still have value for tutors
working with adult audiences. The ai
m is also to support tutors to consider using resources and activities
that they have not used before eg podcasting, blogs and wikis.


Each of the 5 sessions are full of activity and timed for about 60 minutes. However, depending on your
learners and the
duration of your sessions you may choose to break down the sessions. In some cases it
will also be worth revisiting activities but in different contexts to ensure that your learners have secure
skills at this level.


Each session should begin with a refre
sher of what happened in the last session and a reference to any
homework or self
-
study that was set.


Part of the rationale of the SOW is to facilitate learning by giving learners ideas of how they can support
their own learning eg using You Tube or help
desks.


At each level of the qualification these subsume the previous level’s skill standard and coverage and
range. Hence you may find that some of your learners need to review the activities covered in the
schemes of work in levels below that which they

are studying


you may find they have gaps in their
understanding.


A number of free resources have been attached:

A guide to podcasting


a resource from Teachers TV

Structure of the qualification at entry 1




Using ICT



Finding and selecting information



Developing, presenting and communicating information


The criteria of these qualifications specify the requirements in

terms of skill standards and coverage and
range at each level. At each level of the qualification these subsume the previous level’s skill standards
and coverage and range, supporting a progression
-
based suite of skills qualifications. Tutors may choose

to use activities and lesson plans from lower levels to support their learners where they may have not
fully developed skills or perhaps have not used the skills for some time


skills need to be secure before
the learner moves on.


Preparing learners for

assessment


One internally assessed assessment.


Assessment
-

taking time

Minimum 1 hour. Maximum 2 hours. The time can be spread over a number of
sessions, provided centres retain assessment materials securely.


Marks 10 marks in total.


At entry leve
l 1 the assessment paper will contain a context or purpose, which is adaptable to meet
learners’ needs. The tutor may amend the context or purpose, to make it more appropriate to the
learner, whilst maintaining the level of assessment. The tutor may amend
the assessment materials to
reflect the context or purpose. Questions may be re
-
phrased to take account of learner needs.
The
materials produced here can be amended in the same way i.e. the context and purpose amended to suit
your learners. The aim is alw
ays to use contexts that the learner finds interesting and engaging.


To be successful in the test the learner must be familiar all aspects as described in the standards,
coverage and range.

Homework

Looking for the
use of passwords


question


what is
the most obvious
password?

Teaching and Learning

This session aims to broaden your learner’s knowledge of the range of ICT available and gives them the opportunit
y to amend a document.
It is essential that your learners are able to recognise these tools as ICT systems. Looking at a wiki


sharing the experience is a useful way
of doing this. Prepare a Wiki and show your learners on the whiteboard how they can all
contribute to change its content e.g. develop a
story together.


1.

Opener


learning technical vocabulary


word of the session ‘password’ quick card activity.

2.

Ask learners what examples of ICT they have spotted since the last session


review the last sessi
on, reminding learners about the
importance of staying safe.


Introduce this session


This session is in two sections


3.

Ask them if they have heard of Twitter and Wikis.

Discuss what they are


clarify any misunderstandings.

Show them a Twitter page. Use

Twitter to engage learners in reading and noting their ideas for adding a Twitter


to introduce the idea of
onscreen information.


Using a Wiki to engage your learners


put your pre
-
prepared Wiki up on the whiteboard for your learners to see. Ask them

to give you
ideas as to how the Wiki content could be amended. Introduce ICT terms ‘edit’, ‘insert’, ‘amend’


4.

Make the changes to the Wiki. Show your learners different ways of amending ie deleting and retyping, overtyping etc This
should be a fun way
of looking at information on screen and looking for errors.

5.

Introduce the idea of them typing words into a computer themselves.

6.

Show them how to log in to their machines and open a document (
Activity 4
-

invitation) that you have already prepared. Set
the document up so that the learners have to access via the use of a password.


Show the learners how to access a file using a password. Ask them again


why are passwords are used? Let them have a go. Give them
plenty of opportunity to amend and change,

ask them to make a mistake and redo etc. Encourage them to play.

Ask them to change the document as:



the start time is now 7:30pm



the party is on New Years Day



add their name into the document instead of Frederick Holbein’s

Although it is not part of the

coverage and range at entry 1 you may choose to show your learners how to save or print their invitation. An
alternative would be for your learners to open a file with their definition cards in and change the definitions so that they
use their own
words.

7.

Go back to the technical vocabulary


ask them what the word ‘password’ means

8.

Homework


looking for the use of passwords.

Activity Sheet one


ICT Entry level one


Paired a
ctivity looking at the cards and quizzing each other. Depending on the FS English level of your learners using the cards wit
h or without the
definitions.


These cards can be used in many different ways for example:



Give all your learners a set to use for
homework activities



Pairs games



Dominoes


matching the definition to the term



Cover and remember



Top trumps


asking each other questions



Supporting learners to produce their own definitions and their own set of cards



Word of the session ‘password’. Wha
t does it mean? The aim is for the learner to develop an understanding of what the term means and to be able to
recognize

them
. Many learners have problems in the final assessments because they do not recognize words.


One of the issues highlighted by ma
ny people new to using ICT is remembering the technical terms and they find it liberating when they become familiar and
can use the terminology themselves. However when working with Entry level 1 learners it is important to use these with discr
etion


rem
ember rephrasing
may be used where appropriate. Some Entry level learners are simply new to ICT others may have literacy or other issues whi
ch need to be considered
