- To recognise basic inputs and outputs
Pupils should be taught to:
- Design, write and debug programs that accomplish specific goals, including controlling or simulating physical systems; solve problems by decomposing them into smaller parts
- Use sequence, selection, and repetition in programs; work with variables and various forms of input and output
- Select, use and combine a variety of software (including internet services) on a range of digital devices to design and create a range of programs, systems and content that accomplish given goals, including collecting, analysing, evaluating and presenting data and information
Pupils needing extra support: Try using a desktop computer where they can experience plugging/unplugging the different peripherals.
Pupils working at greater depth: Should include more detail on their posters about what happens when a key is pressed/mouse is clicked. What information is sent? Where is it received? They should also consider other forms of input and output.
