How IT Is and Can Be Utilised in Secondary School

We are likely in a defining moment for the future of technology in education. With the imposed national lockdown, schools, teachers and pupils have been cornered into finding innovative ways to continue pupils’ learning. This may exist in the form of video classes, online games or even using YouTube to give lessons. This poses an interesting question: if technology can allow schools, companies and even countries to continue to function during a global pandemic, why isn’t there a heavier focus on technology within the school curriculum?

How IT Is and Can Be Utilised in Primary School

Years ago, even as recently as mid-late 2000s, students almost exclusively worked with paper and pen with the only technological interaction being PowerPoints, movies and, of course, ICT lessons!

Fast forward to the third decade of the century and technology forms a much more integral part of a student’s learning. It’s no longer a choice – technology is all around us and there’s no escaping the growth and increased use in daily societal life. So, this needs to be reflected in a child’s education and preparation for the world, right?

Thank You to all of our IT Superstars

IT professionals have always somewhat gone under the radar when it comes to their importance to society… that is until the nation’s stability rested partially on them. When the nationwide lockdown was announced, many businesses likely went into panic mode – what are we going to do? How will we continue to operate efficiently?

Why Consider an Online IT Course

Contrary to common public thought, online learning is not purely for the tech-savvy, computer-whizzes among us. Nor does it mean you are forced into a tight timescale to keep up with other learners. Online learning is now everywhere, for everyone, at any time, and it is here to stay.

As you are here on this page, the chances are you are among those into technology or are at least looking to learn more about IT. The IT job market is booming, with salaries set to rise within 5 years – the sooner you begin filling yourself with experience, the better you’ll be for it.

Getting the Skills You Need for a Job in IT

Regardless of what industry you are contemplating working in, all job roles expect you to have skills; which you may have heard being called “soft skills”, “21st-century skills” or “applied skills”, these are the non-technical skills, ones that you don’t study and aren’t related to just one field. Employees can hire a student to train, but if you don’t possess soft skills, you will discover it becomes hard to stay employed. If you are wondering what these skills are and to get an inkling on skills you might need to develop, carry on reading.

How to Become a Web Developer

What is a Web Developer?

A common misconception about web development is that it is an easy task – anybody can do it, right? Well, this is simply not true. The simplest processes – from buttons, to images, to animation – can sometimes require hours to properly code. Web Development can be seen as an art form, as even the most straightforward-looking websites can take the most time, skill and patience to execute.

In terms of responsibilities, a Web Developer is essentially required to build the foundations of a website and be responsible for how the site functions by constructing the framework with HTML, CSS and JavaScript. Although primarily a desk job, you’ll still have the opportunity to meet clients in order to understand and implement their plans and work with them throughout the development.
