Week 1:AS ICT 2008 Intro

Not a very intriguing title, but until our VLE (FrogTeacher) is up and running, I want to communicate with my students, issue lesson plan instructions, and possible links for further reading or development on a topic. Yesterday we started by looking at the new AQA ICT AS Spec (in brief) concentrating on pages 5 – 11, as these are relevant for AS. At the moment, I’m not going to work according to the Scheme of Work suggested by AQA – although useful as a teaching resource, I want to get my students interested in the course. So, we’re starting with 3.2 Unit 2 INFO2.5 Safety and Security of Data in ICT systems: privacy of data in ICT Systems and the legislation to protect data..

Task for students (September 2 and 3) : Social Networking and Privacy, Facing up to Facebook, (view del.icio.us ASICT link ‘Sophos recommended privacy settings for Facebook’ and videos onSocial Networking in Plain English, Employers are Watching, Federal Human Data Mining, Privacy and Social Networks) Consider: Who has access to Data? Are these sites covered by the Data Protection Act?
