As an objective of teaching of Computing is to equip children with the technological skill to become independent learners, the teaching style that we adopt is as active and practical as possible. While, at times, we do give children direct instruction on how to use hardware or software, the main emphasis of our teaching in Computing is for individuals or groups of children to use computers to help them to progress in whatever they are studying. So, for example, children might research a history topic by using role-play software that engages them in a highly visual way, or they might place themselves in a historical setting by manipulating a digital photograph, or they might investigate a particular issue on the Internet.
