This Teacher's Guide accompanies the brand new student text written to meet the requirements of the new Applied GCSE course in ICT. Unlike other courses, the Applied ICT focuses on how ICT affects all forms of communication in society, bringing new ways of functioning, trading and doing business. The three units of the course cover the applications of ICT; how it is used in organisations; and its role in society. The Guide has four main sections; three match each unit of the course, with worksheets and help sheets referring directly to the student book. The fourth section contains suggested schemes of work, lesson plans and course support. There is a particular focus on assessment, with support for each of the assessment methods of the major awarding bodies (online, exam based and coursework).
