ICT - Year 9 Topics Overview
Unit 9.1: Control Systems
In this unit pupils explore ICT systems through the scenario of designing a new water ride in a theme park. The ride must be a new concept, water based and involve some kind of boat or raft.
Unit 9.2: integrating Applications to Find Solutions
In this unit pupils work as a team to set up, organise and run a fundraising event that must make a profit (this is the constraint).
Unit 9.3: Global Communication
In this unit pupils work with a 'remote partner' in another school to collect common, agreed data for a specific topic. Once the data has been collected, it is transferred electronically and merged to form a complete data set. Pupils then produce a report on their joint findings.
