Computing Activities

Computing includes Computer Science, Information Technology and Digital Literacy

EducationCity’s Computing modules support teachers in delivering the Computing Programmes of Study at Key Stages 1 and 2. The modules:

  • include a stimulating array of content, allowing students to explore new ideas to help them use computational thinking and creativity to understand the technological world around them.
  • seek to enable students to become digitally literate and express themselves through the creative use of information and communication technologies.
  • help students to become responsible, competent and confident users of ICT.

Learn Screens - Introduce or Reinforce New Concepts +

In every computing Activity, content is made as clear to understand as possible, with visual and audible reinforcements for every answer. It is the combination of large text, clear voice-over, colourful graphics and fun music that makes EducationCity’s computing content appeal to all learners.

  • Activities are great for formative assessment, typically including 8-10 questions per topic.
  • Scores are saved to SuccessTracker to provide a comprehensive student report at the end of the year or term.
  • Printable Activity Sheets give students something to work on independently in or after the lesson.
