Log On Computer Studies Students’ Book 1 explores the world of computers. The course book is intended to help Form Four students acquire skills in Networking, Data Communication, ICT Application and Impact on society, and Career Opportunities in ICT. The course book is also intended to help students develop greater depth knowledge of computer studies, and aspire to work in the Information and Communication Technology (ICT) industry.
The course book has special features to help students develop the essential skills required in studying, practising, and interacting with computers.
Each chapter opens with the chapter objectives, which spell out what the students are expected to have learnt, and the skills they are expected to have developed after studying the chapter. Other features include keywords, practical learning activities, and a comprehensive glossary. The course book also has revision exercises and sample test papers. The answers to the exercises are provided in the Teachers’ Guide.
An important feature that addresses emerging issues is labelled “Information is Power.” The write-ups under this title are meant to encourage the student to source for information on other contemporary issues related to ICTs, for example, use of microwave technology, stress management, and choice of career. It is expected that after studying these write-ups, students should be able to make responsible and informed decisions.
