What is computing

Computing allows children to use computational thinking and creativity to understand the digital world. Children learn about computer science, how digital systems (electronic devices) work and how to design and code programs.


Computing also teaches children how to be digitally literate and safe online so that they can use technology responsibly and effectively. Technology is constantly evolving and is an important element of everyday life. Irk Valley computing lessons aim to prepare children to be able to thrive in the digital world.
