Teaching Computing with iPad Apps

From the age of 5, pupils need to begin to understand what algorithms are, how to create and debug programs and predict the behaviours of simple programs.

Once the children are in Key Stage 2 they are able to design, write and debug programs that accomplish specific goals and the iPad can be used to sequence, select and repeat actions in programs.

Through iPad technology, pupils are taught to use logical reasoning to explain how algorithms work and be able to debug programs and the iPad can support this.

Whether your school only has access to iPads or whether you want to provide your children with the opportunity to experience access to the computing curriculum with a variety of operating systems, this course is for you.
