- To explain how data can be safely transferred
Pupils should be taught to:
- 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
- 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
For pupils needing extra support: Ask to go last as this will enable them to observe their peers and learn from their examples.
Pupils working at greater depth: Should be challenged to consider a way to encode the data so that it is robust enough to cope with packets getting lost, but any packet interception would not be decodable.
