Digital Technologies – Foundation Year

To the point

  • Ask children to think about steps to complete a task. Talk out loud about the steps you are undertaking when you complete a task.
  • Allow children to play on digital devices to enable them to become familiar with how they work

The long bit with all the background detail

Learning in Digital Technologies focuses on developing foundational skills in computational thinking and an awareness of personal experiences using digital systems.

Children will have had opportunities to create a range of digital solutions through guided play and integrated learning, such as using robotic toys to navigate a map or recording science data with software applications.

Children present data, including numerical, categorical, text, image, audio and video data, in creative ways to create meaning.

They begin to develop their design skills by conceptualising algorithms as a sequence of steps for carrying out instructions.

Through discussion with teachers, students learn to apply safe and ethical practices to protect themselves and others as they interact online for learning and communicating.
