The Cambridge ICT Starters (8984) syllabus
This syllabus is a series of modules that assess candidates on their ability to use a range of computer software to communicate, handle information, model, and program solutions. It is suitable for candidates of any age and is typically used for learners aged 5 to 14 years. Information and Communications Technology (ICT) is now part of the educational experience worldwide and is regarded as a new ‘literacy’ alongside reading, writing, and numeracy.
Cambridge ICT Starters gives schools a flexible framework to develop learners’ ICT competence. Modules can be delivered according to the needs of each learning situation and age of the learners – across the curriculum or as a separate course of study.
Learners will develop key ICT skills in a range of applications including computer programming, word processing, digital graphics, databases, spreadsheets, email, presentations, video/animation, the internet, and web authoring. They will also consider wider issues such as E-safety and the adaption of their work to suit their audience
