Presenting practical ideas that support teachers and trainees with the planning, implementation and assessment of the 2014 Primary Computing Curriculum.
This grounded new book demonstrates how freely available apps and web-based applications, programmes for PCs and Macs, can be used creatively to design innovative and engaging activities in the Early Years, Key Stages 1 and 2.
It covers all aspects of the 2014 primary curriculum, including computer science, digital literacy and information technology, and includes both plugged and unplugged activities.
"This book is an essential resource for anyone who wants to make the most of the opportunities afforded by the entry of computing into the National Curriculum and is looking for support to meet the challenges this represents."

Price Value QualityI found this book very useful as it has practical ideas that I can directly try out. Useful links are also a bonus, saved me from searching on the Internet for hours. I hate schemes, I just needed ideas to start with and this book had many!
