Alignment to National Curriculum Statements Note: All lesson Plans in this series are aligned to the Further Education and Training (FET) National Curriculum Statements (NCS) for Electrical Technology. National Curriculum Statement builds its Learning Outcomes for Grades 10 – 12 on the Critical and Developmental Outcomes that were inspired by the Constitution and developed through a democratic process.

Practical applications of Ohms Law Measure resistance of kettle element and calculate power rating –Does it work for a light bulb? Calculate volt-drop in a conductor -
Your evaluation of this activity Documentation –does it meet educational requirements –does it give and allow for practical applications –can it be used by teachers clear and understandable guidelines Usable handout for students Materials –affordable –robust
Critical Outcomes Critical Outcomes As a result of the activities, all learners should develop and demonstrate the ability to; identify and solve problems and make decisions using critical and creative thinking; work effectively with others as members of a team, group, organisation and community; organise and manage themselves and their activities responsibly and effectively; collect, analyse, organise and critically evaluate information; communicate effectively using visual, symbolic and/or language skills in various modes; use science and technology effectively and critically showing responsibility towards the environment and the health of others; and demonstrate an understanding of the world as a set of related systems by recognising that problem solving contexts do not exist in isolation.
The Developmental Outcomes The Developmental Outcomes require learners to be able to: The Developmental Outcomes reflect on and explore a variety of strategies to learn more effectively; participate as responsible citizens in the life of local, national and global communities; be culturally and aesthetically sensitive across a range of social contexts; explore education and career opportunities; and develop entrepreneurial opportunities.
Learning Outcomes Learning Outcomes LO1: Technology, Society and the Environment - The learner is able to demonstrate an awareness and understanding of the interrelationship between Technology, society and the environment. LO2: Technological Process - The learner is able to understand and apply the Technological process. LO3: Knowledge and Understanding - The learner is able to demonstrate an understanding of the concepts and principles related to Electrical Technology. LO4: Application of Knowledge - The learner is able to apply principles and practices related to Electrical Technology.
Link with LOs and ASs of Electrical Technology Grade 10 Link with LOs and ASs of Electrical Technology Grade 10 As a result of the Get connected with Ohms Law activity, all learners should develop and demonstrate the ability to; present assignments by means of a variety of communication media. (10.2.5) describe the use and care of tools and measuring instruments (10.3.2) describe the principles of electricity (10.3.4) identify and describe the characteristics of electronic components (10.3.6
