Year 13 have been using their ICT time to improve their understanding of being able to search an online map. Each student has completed a search exercise that involved exploring a certain area.
A list of ten postcodes was given. The students were asked to find the location, and then name the nearest local features. Examples were needed of the nearest main road, train station, tube station and a local shop of interest.
The exercise required the students to feel confident in zooming in and out on an online map. This is also a practical life skill that the students might need to use when out in the local community.
