Computer science in the computing curriculum KS2

Computing at KS1 session 3 SOL task unplugged activity Last week and this week

This week Learning outcomes Information technology Be able to explain how some uses of IT can support learning Digital literacy

Know where to find useful resources for e-safety Information technology 2nd strand of National Curriculum. Could include use of photos, creation of videos, word processing, creating graphs, multimedia presentations, and more ..

E.g. last week Multimedia presentations to combine pictures, narration and captions, e.g. Movie Maker ; Example schemes of work Wokingham

LEA see overview on Moodle Also see 100 Computing Lessons for the 2014 Curriculum in library and on reading list Using and creating graphs KS1

E.g. 2Simple Infant Video Toolkit 2Count 2Graph Key point: Make graphs cross-curricular and/or part of everyday routines

e.g. Number of packed lunches, school dinners that day; Science no. and type of different minibeasts found; Geography busiest road, types of local shops. etc. to help answer real questions (not just

to create a graph for no real purpose). Pros/cons of computergenerated graph? Pros/cons of computer generated graph? Computer

graphs enable children to focus on the manipulation and interpretation of data rather than on the construction of the graph itself and one can speedily enter and store data which can be shown graphically, often in a variety of forms (Simpson, et al 2011) Can develop childrens knowledge, skills and

understanding of data handling independently of the motor skills needed for hand-drawing of graphs (Turvey, et al 2014) Key features of ICT Multi-modality/multimedia - Text,

sound, images, animations can be easily combined. Provisionality Work can be changed/improved/edited when using a computer so there is no pressure to get things right the first time and work can be polished

Key features of ICT Interactivity Children can follow lines of enquiry, or make attempts and get quick responses. Automation ICT can perform functions automatically
