Our approach to Computing

We are surrounded by computers and technology, but too often children become passive users of the tech that surrounds them.

By learning about digital literacy, hardware, coding and online safety, we can shift children from passive to active users of technology and encourage them to become creators of content via a broad range of computer science skills.

Our Computing topics are based around three main concepts: digital literacy and online safety, computational thinking, and computers and hardware. Our teacher videos make complex computing subjects easy to understand and deliver in the classroom.
