DKIT - TY Week - May 2019

Dear All

DkIT is delighted to announce that we will be hosting our next TY programme in the week Tuesday 21st  to  Friday  24thof May.  During this week we will be presenting a number of varied ICT subjects including:

 

• Hardware: Examination of the anatomy of a computer, providing the students the

opportunity to take a computer apart and physically explore the individual

components. An additional component of this topic was an introduction to logic

circuits and the use of software to build their own working circuitry.

• Digital Systems: Building on their morning lecturer, this class presented the

software used to bring the hardware to life. Topics such as the different type of OS

and the different system interfaces used to manage each.

• Web: Introduction to the Web and webpage development using HTML and CSS. The

students develop a topical website illustrating the growing plastic pollution of the

oceans.

• Programming: JavaScript was used to animate the website and to provide

simulations of time.

• Animation: Students developed characters and environments within they could interact.

• Security: Overview of the current security threats, including the recent meltdown

attack.

• Artificial Intelligence (AI): What is it, the role of machine learning & deep learning.
