Introduction to Information and Communications Technology

Information and Communications Technology forms part of the core curriculum for all Leaving Certificate Applied students. It is intended to give students the skills and understanding to use computers in both their current and future lives. The Leaving Certificate Applied programme offers the ideal forum for students to apply these skills in a practical way, particularly in presenting task work and key assignments across the full spectrum of the curriculum. The achievable goals of developing accuracy, neatness and presentation skills generate a sense of pride in work done by students which enhances self esteem and motivates students to maximise their potential in other aspects of the course and in their personal lives.
