The computing curriculum at Blackminster is designed to enable students to use computers to support and enhance their learning, develop their understanding of computing hardware and software and consider the safe and responsible use of new technologies and media.
In addition to specialist Computing lessons, students are given opportunities to develop and apply their computing capability through the use of computing technology to support their learning in all subjects. Individual teachers and subject leaders use their own judgement to decide where the use of computers is appropriate across the curriculum.
Students are given opportunities to support their work by being taught to:
• Find things out from a variety of sources, selecting and synthesising the information to meet their needs and developing an ability to question its accuracy, bias and plausibility
• Develop their ideas using computing tools to amend and refine their work and enhance its quality and accuracy
• Exchange and share information, both directly and through electronic media
• Review, modify and evaluate their work, reflecting critically on its quality as it progresses
