That Blue Square Thing


The CIDA and DIDA courses will stop after Summer 2019. This means that unless you're starting Year 11 in September 2018 you won't be able to count this course as a GCSE subject. Which is a shame.
If I teach you and you're not going to be in Year 11 in September, then you probably need to look at the Creative iMedia pages.

Circuit board imageCiDA - or the Certificate in Digital Applications if you prefer - is an applied ICT course. There's an exam on web design stuff worth 25% of the marks and a portfolio based on a project brief (or SPB) worth 75%.

The Tell Tale page has some examples of story telling techniques that you might be interested in taking a look at. They aren't too advanced and are easily doable with a bit of thought and planning.

Exam Preparation

Exam prep material for the CIDA exam can be found at CIDA Exam Prep

Planning and Organising

Before you start working you need to have a long, hard think about the project brief and get yourself organised.
