GCSE – Lesson 3 – Network hardware
This lesson gently steps learners through the key hardware components required for communication across a network. They are first given definitions, using pause points to check recall. They are then given an activity where they spot the missing device from a network, before designing their own networks based on given scenarios. Finally, learners are given a quick ‘Who am I?’ quiz where they must decide which hardware component is being described.
- Describe the tasks performed by the network hardware: wireless access point, router, switch, hub, NIC, and bridge
