CAMBRIDGE LOWER SECONDARY- DIGITAL LITERACY
Digital literacy is an essential skill for learners of all ages, including lower secondary students. The digital world allows us to connect, collaborate, innovate and discover new information on an ever-broadening scale, and learners must be able to effectively use technology from the very beginning of their educational journey.
Students develop the digital skills that will help with many aspects of their future learning and development. They will:
understand their place, and the place of others, in an interconnected world and make educated decisions about the information that they encounter online.
develop knowledge and understanding that will allow them to respond to, and evaluate technology of the future
develop skills to create increasingly sophisticated documents and presentations
learn how to become positive contributors to the digital world
use digital technology safely and protect their own physical and emotional wellbeing.
This course supports progression to other IT-related Cambridge Upper Secondary subjects.
