Computing

Through studying computing at Walton Oak, pupils are prepared to use computational thinking and creativity to understand and change the world around them. We ensure that pupils become digitally literate at a level suitable for the future workplace and as active participants in a digital world – able to use, express themselves and develop their ideas through information and communication technology.

Themes:

       1)  What is a computer?

       The key skills to understand the technology around us, how it affects our lives and how we can interact efficiently,                 responsibly and safely with it.

 2)  Presenting Information and Multimedia

       Producing a range of digital media (words, drawings, audio, web-based), understanding the concepts behind it and             how it can help us express ourselves through the creation of our own content.

  3)   Data and Information

       Being able to recognise, interpret, manipulate and present various data sources both online and offline.

  4)   Programming & Algorithms

         Recognising that we control computers through a series of explicit, planned and detailed instructions in order to                   achieve what we require.

  5)   Digital Literacy

The ability to make and share meaning in different modes and formats; to create, collaborate and communicate effectively and to understand how and when digital technologies can best be used to support these processes.
