Computing (Previously ICT)

Computing is made up of three elements:

  1. Computer Science – teaches the pupils the principles of information and computation, how digital systems work, and how to put this knowledge to use through programming.
  2. Information Technology – pupils are equipped to use information technology to create programs, systems and a range of content.
  3. Digital Literacy – ensures that pupils are able to use, and express themselves and develop their ideas through information and communication technology – at a level suitable for the future workplace and as active participants in a digital world.

To support learning in all curriculum areas and for teaching of computing at Baring, there is an ICT suite and 2 banks of laptops (acquired from the London 2012 Olympics Legacy).  There are also iPads that are timetabled to be used in classes. Other resources include cameras and tripods, videos, remote and programmable toys, and a range of software. 

See this article on How to Help your Child at Coding ( Sept 2016). We use a lot of the free software and apps mentioned.
