IAL IT

“The number one benefit of information technology is that it empowers people to do what they want to do. It lets people be creative. It lets people be productive. It lets people learn things they didn’t think they could learn before, and so in a sense it is all about potential.”    Steve Ballmer

 

 

If you enjoy being able to select and use appropriate IT tools and techniques in order to help you carry out investigations; capture and handle data; solve problems; web programming; make decisions; present and communicate information then this is an ideal AS or A Level for you.

The way we live and work in today’s society is enabled by the use of digital technologies. In this course, you will develop an understanding of what these technologies are, how they work together, and how they enable our digital world to function. Additionally, you will understand how to critically assess the value and impact of new technologies.

Websites, social media and apps are part of our everyday lives. Web designers and developers are continually innovating and developing new ways for us to access information and interact with the web. In this course, you will learn real-world, best practices in writing code for the web (HTML and CSS) and understand how coding and programming languages combine to create an effective user experience

JavaScript is the programming language that provides much of this interactivity and responsiveness. HTML is a markup language. Writing semantic markup means using appropriate HTML elements to describe the content of a web page and learning to be sematic when writing HTML makes the markup more meaningful. You will learn how to create well-structured, semantic web pages with JavaScript (interactive content) that will enable you to create consistent web products that function better and provide a better experience for the user.
