- To understand about some of the historical figures that contributed to technological advances in computing
Pupils should be taught to:
- Use search technologies effectively, appreciate how results are selected and ranked, and be discerning in evaluating digital content
- 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: Provide fact file printouts of some figures to help support online research
Pupils working at greater depth: Should be encouraged to embed videos into their presentations to show off their skills. They could also consider splitting ‘paired’ figures like Steve Jobs and Steve Wozniak and encourage children to think about how to persuade the audience that one was more important than the other.
