I've been asked to compile a set of key ICT skills for each year group in my school but I'm really struggling with this. To me, this is rather like going back to the QCA units and we have moved away from this. We plan according to the 5 themes in ICT (communication, control etc) and link with other subjects to make ICT links (as I'm sure we all do). This does not mean that we do not teach any discrete ICT, yes we do. But only when it is necessary to achieve the end goal. We do not ignore technical skills - after all without them, children wouldn't achieve very much! We have a technical skills list which is completed at the end of each year and passed on to the next class teacher so that they are aware of what the majority in the class are capable of. I'm really not keen on the idea of allocating 'specific skills' to specific year groups. I'm not quite sure what I'm asking for here - any thoughts / reactions? Thank you.
