Computing ESKA -Preparation

How could you teach children in KS1/Ks2 Algorithms? Give a range of example of ‘unplugged’ activities at KS1. Algorithm Definition: An algorithm is a procedure or formula for problem-solving, based on conducting a sequence of specified actions. For example, a computer programme can be seen as an elaborate algorithm. In mathematics and computer science an […]

Computational Thinking.

Within our first computing session into year two we looked at computational thinking as well as some ideas presented by Miles Berry. Some of the aspects included within computational thinking involve: algorithms, logical reasoning, decomposition, patterns and abstraction. We looked at defining these concepts from previous knowledge and learning from year 1. Algorithm:  A step […]
