In this module, students are introduced to searching. They use the internet, CD-ROMs and/or eBooks to learn about different ways to access digital information and they begin to understand how to choose the most appropriate search technique. They understand the difference between menus and indexes and they can recognise and use different kinds of links and buttons.
Students should be able to recognise and use back and forward buttons, hyperlinks, hot spots, indexes or menus to navigate and find information.
Students may be provided with the keywords but should be able to follow search results to find the information required.
Students demonstrate that they can use search techniques to answer questions. They should complete the searches on specified websites or on a CD-ROM.
In addition to the pass criteria, students are able to select their own keywords to find answers to specified questions, by searching for information on a CD-ROM or on the internet. The keywords chosen should enable them to follow an efficient and accurate line of enquiry.
Students are able to recognise relevant and irrelevant information/links from the results of their searches. They reject the irrelevant information and keep information which is connected to answering their search questions. They should also demonstrate their understanding that not all the information they find is accurate and trustworthy.
At the end of this course, student will take the ICT Starters Assessment of Initial Steps Stage 2 Module 2 : Starting Searches.
