Teaching key stage 2 computing - module 2 - remote CP453

Skilfully combining a wide range of software applications and multimedia such as video, images and sound, you will be better able to support children in creative and engaging project work across the whole primary curriculum.


Summary

This CPD follows on from the first module to fully cover the KS2 computing curriculum. Skilfully combining a wide range of software applications and multimedia such as video, images and sound, you will be better able to support children in creative and engaging project work across the whole primary curriculum. They will develop their ability to select the right tool for the job, then use them in a considered, effective way.

This will lead towards a project combining a range of skills based on collecting, analysing and presenting data. This maps closely to the expectations of the maths curriculum.
