Advice for teachers

The History of Computing resource represents a strategic response from LGfL and other members of the National Education Network to the change to the Computing element of the National Curriculum and the shift away from the ICT curriculum. The resource aims to provide a unique, high quality and relevant resource for teachers.

Please note: It does not try and support all aspects of the Computing Curriculum. There are a number of resources that will help potential users of the resource gain a quick insight into what the resource includes. Teachers are encouraged to:

Watch the video introduction

View the curriculum mapping

View the filtered resource bank

The video material is used to support a broad range of complete lesson activities to cover Key Stages 2 to 5, however teachers are encouraged to use the suggested activities and tailor to support the needs of their particular teaching context.

Video 'embed' codes allow teachers to disaggregate the video material into a learning platform and build their own learning pathways through the curriculum linked activities.

The resource has also been built to support independent research activities for students into the topics covered.
