5.0 out of 5 stars An essential book for teaching ICT Functional Skills, 14 Sep 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Fast Forward Functional Skills Information Communication Technology (Ict) Level 2 (Paperback)
Many ICT departments are finding that they are teaching the ICT Functional Skills course. As a course it is OK but the main problem has been the distinct lack of resources currently available to help and support teachers.

This book is probably the best one out of the very few available. It is primarily written so that students can follow it without needing a lot of input from their teacher. However, as a teacher I doubt that many school students would want to actually work through the book themselves.

I feel that it is probably more appropriate for the teacher to use the book as a guide for themselves so that they know exactly what they need to cover and to what depth. Once you are confident about what needs to be covered it is easy enough to use the tried and tested resources that you have probably built up over the years to cover the concepts.

There are great end of chapter activities and quick tests and I would certainly recommend using these with students.

The book is broken into sections which mainly follow the QCA points for this course. It is not specifically geared towards any of the exam boards but I didn't find that a problem.

If you are teaching the ICT Functional Skills course then I would highly recommend that you purchase this book - even if you just buy the one copy.
