Computers and Algorithms
Becky and Ivy take us through today's activities. Computers are an integral part of our daily lives, especially at the moment. Even young children are good at using devices that contain computers. Today’s activities ask children to question how the computers around us work. We are exploring the idea that all computers follow instructions and that the instructions must be in order to get the result we want. In other words, computers follow algorithms. Computing is great fun and doesn’t have to involve actual computers! The activities today will help children to understand a fundamental concept of computing and enjoy themselves along the way!
