IGCSE

I worked with the Hodder Education textbook. This page attempts to organise the posts on this blog in accordance with the chapters in that textbook.

1. Types & components of computer systems

2. Input and output devices

3. Storage devices and media

4. Networks and the effects of using them

5. The effects of using IT

6. ICT applications

There is a small amount of overlap between this module and the Communication module.

8. Safety and security

10. Communication

14. Styles

This section revolves around word processing in Microsoft Word.

16. Graphs and charts

Excel charts.

18. Databases

Data for all practical assessments is provided in CSV file format. You must be adept at working with CSV files in Excel and Access.

19. Presentations

This is an easy and fun section.

20. Spreadsheets

There is no shortage of Excel help here at stylus!

21. Website authoring

The HTML5 and CSS components of IGCSE curriculum is based on HTML5 and CSS.

The curriculum is based on sound web development principles, such as the separation of content, presentation and behaviour. My only gripe is that I repeatedly see assessments with tables used as page layout structures.
