Year 11 are investigating hardware as part of our ICT learning for the spring term. These have been very practical sessions. They started with the students learning how to connect the various parts of a PC.
Safety was an important factor here. ICT teacher Mr Gratton spoke about the importance of unplugging all machines from the mains socket before we make any changes.
The next stage was to consider the many different connecting cables that are used. Year 11 were able to identify USB cables, ethernet cables and VGA cables.
Each class member took it in turns to set up the PC from start to finish. Worksheets were completed to show our knowledge.
