What is the Purpose of Computing?
At OLQM we encourage the children to use computational thinking and creativity to better understand our ever-changing world.
Computing has deep links with mathematics, science and design and technology, and provides insights into both natural and artificial systems. The core of computing is computer science, in which pupils are taught the principles of information and computation, how digital systems work and how to put this knowledge to use through programming.
Developing pupils knowledge and understanding enables them to use information technology to create programs, systems and a range of content. Computing also ensures that pupils become digitally literate – able to use, and express themselves and develop their ideas through, information and communication technology.
