KS4 Cambridge Nationals Creative iMedia

A high-quality Creative iMedia technology curriculum equips our pupils to use Information Technology and creativity to understand and change the world. The IT and Digital Literacy skills involved in Creative iMedia have deep links with mathematics, science, and design and technology, and provides insights into both natural and artificial systems. One of the main aspects of Creative iMedia is how to understand and apply the fundamental principles and concepts of digital media including factors that influence product design, use of media codes and conventions, pre-production planning techniques, legal issues and creation/publishing/distribution considerations. Building on this knowledge and understanding, pupils are equipped to use information technology to create digital graphics and a digital artefact. The Creative iMedia curriculum ensures that pupils become digitally literate – able to use, and express themselves and develop their ideas through, information and communication technology – at a level suitable for the future workplace and as active participants in a digital world.
