Developing Digital Literacy and Information Technology

Much emphasis has been placed on Programming within the Computing Curriculum. However, the National Curriculum for Computing requires schools to teach children to:

“…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.”

The course content can vary according to school’s needs.

Session contents could include:

  • Reviewing curriculum coverage/staff training
  • Communicating information and ideas
    • Text processing and multimedia
    • Electronic communication (blogs/wikis/Learning platform)
    • Graphic packages
    • Photo/Video
    • Sound and Music
    • Animation
  • Collecting, Analysing, Evaluating Real World Data and Problem-solving
    • Data handling (including sensors)
    • Effective research
    • Networks
