6 Summary of Session 6
In this session you learned about computing and why it is important for children to learn about it. You learned about computational thinking, ‘unplugged’ computing and algorithms, and you saw some practical ways of teaching computing in schools.
You should now be able to:
- appreciate computing and its role in the primary curriculum
- understand some ways to support children’s learning of computing
- develop your own skills for computing.
In the next session, you will learn about cross-curricular projects and creative ways to help children’s learning.
You can now go to Session 7.
