Lesson 2 - Computer Systems And Us

In this session, pupils will consider how larger computer systems work and how devices and processes are connected. Pupils will also have the opportunity to discuss and reflect upon how computer systems help us in our daily lives. Through the activities pupils will be supported to identify tasks that are managed by computer systems, explain their benefits and identify the human elements of a computer system. This session is second in a six session teaching unit provided by the National Centre for Computing Education.
