Computing in Schools

As we move into increasing the level of computer science into the curriculum, these are some of the topics that are being introduced into the classrooms:

  • Coding
  • Electronics
  • Robotics
  • Computer Science Principles and Applications

In the new program of study, there are three core strands:

  • Computer Science
  • Information Technology
  • Digital Literacy

In any one lesson teachers might cover aspects of different strands such as search engines, safety as well as computer science topics including algorithms and flow of programs.
