Man is still the most extraordinary computer of all
At Dallington, Computing is taught as a discrete subject once a week. Across the school, the emphasis of these lessons is for the children to develop safe practice when using electronic equipment, learn how to program computers and know how to use electronic equipment to support their learning. Learning is practical and makes use of Dallington’s supply of laptops, iPads and programmable toys.
When appropriate, computing equipment is used through-out the curriculum to support the subject being taught. Teachers make use of interactive screens to demonstrate ideas, while children use iPads and laptops to produce work. We want our children to learn that computers are not only sources of entertainment, but also powerful tools for learning and creativity.
We all take part in the Hour of Code.
