You will develop your knowledge of internet-connected computer systems, from hardware to online safety. You will take-away engaging ways to use computers and software effectively, supporting other areas of curriculum learning. Combining popular and accessible tools, you will develop the skills and ideas to support creative projects produced by your children. You'll also discover age-appropriate data collection, analysis and sharing methods and projects.

This course is delivered as part of the National Centre for Computing Education.

You will be able to help children:

  • Understand how computers work, their constituent parts and the instructions they follow
  • Recognise the many types of computer system in the world around them, making purposeful and safe use of them
  • Learn through projects and lessons where they collect and share data through surveys and investigations
  • Create digital content such as images, video and sound in multimedia projects
  • Consider their own use of technology, the benefits and risks that it brings, and know its importance in the world and their learning through development of your own subject knowledge, pedagogy and practice.
