S1 ICT Xtranormal Easter Competition

It was an amazing effort put in by two of our classes this week as they created their Text to Movie animations.

A number of winners walked away with their Easter eggs but it was such a difficult decision for the judges to decide which presentations deserved the awards.

Brilliant effort all round!

S2 Computing Intermediate 1 Unit 3

Computers and the Internet

Although the class has covered much of this unit through exercises and tasks, we now move onto the formal topics within this Unit.

One of the major tasks involves comparing specifications of Hardware by sourcing these on-line at large suppliers. PC World and other companies allow us to investigate Input devices, Systems, Output devices, and Backing storage devices without going into the shops.

Exams

Yes it is time for the S2 exam 26/3/10.

A little extra study will go a long way to making sure the students pass this tes!
