Digital Technology

Hi Class 9 IT students,

On Thursday (and to make up for the key that didn't quite make it to my desk....) I would like you to continue on with the work from wherever you were up to. I need this work recorded somewhere so it can go into your IT book, or you can email me what you have discovered.

The work sheets are in this link: 

If you are up to the data part of the exercises: The aim is to have a play with some of the features of a spreadsheet program (Like Excel), using formulas and charts, and being able to copy/paste these into a word processing program (like Word). You do not have to use Microsoft products for this. You can use Apple programs or Open Office or Libre Office to do the same thing. If you are wondering what the difference is between them all - find out! There are valid reasons for choosing any of the four I have listed.

I would also like you to practice typing.  Just 10 minutes a day. Practising on a phone or tablet is not the experience I would like you to have. If you don't have access to a full keyboard you can make up for this when we come back to school.

Good luck and see you soon!
