Technology is changing the lives of everyone. Through teaching Computing we equip children to participate in a rapidly-changing world where work and leisure activities are increasingly transformed by technology.
We enable them to find, explore, analyse, exchange and present information. We also focus on developing the skills necessary for children to be able to use information in a discriminating and effective way.
Computing skills are a major factor in enabling children to be confident, creative and independent learners.
At Fitzwilliam Primary School we recognise the fact that the effectiveness of any resource is dependent upon how and why it is being used. We are aware that clear objectives, direct teaching and good class management are the key elements of an effective Computing lesson. However, we believe that the appropriate use of good quality resources will enhance good teaching. Whilst we are aware of the limitations of any resource, the resources used at Fitzwilliam have been developed to enable children and teachers to participate fully in all Computing teaching.
