Research output: Contribution to Book/ReportChapter


Learning objectives By the end of the chapter you should be able to: •• develop an understanding of how digital technologies can be used to teach computing as a subject and enhance teaching and learning across subjects •• reflect on the potential for using digital technologies to promote collaboration and help children engage in meaningful dialogues with each other and with the wider community •• develop strategies for taking into account teachers’ roles, use of resources and assessment needs when planning lessons using digital technologies •• recognise that children can use programming tools to become makers rather than simply consumers of digital content.
