- To understand what a network is and create an informative poster
Pupils should be taught to:
- Understand computer networks, including the internet; how they can provide multiple services, such as the World Wide Web, and the opportunities they offer for communication and collaboration
- 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: If creating a glossary, allow them to stick in the pictures and definitions used in the Activity: Network sorting. Focus on what a network is over other success criteria.
Pupils working at greater depth: Should explain clearly what a network is and why they are useful in their posters, as well as using appropriate images and layout.
