Computers are just for playing games, right? Many of your pupils will think so. It may be a cultural shift for both the pupils and their parents to change that perception of computing. However, the learning gained from the ‘games’ played on computers in the primary classroom will help to prepare children to live and work in the modern world.
The teaching ideas in Teaching Primary Computing are engaging, easy to implement, and use mostly free tools that operate across the many digital platforms that primary schools use. Addressing every aspect of the National Curriculum, the book is split into year groups, and each chapter offers practitioners an essential summary of all the information and vocabulary needed to successfully implement exciting, well-structured lessons that will keep your class riveted!
