Here is my next definition in my work on my version of an ICT curriculum. Originally I had called this strand simply Computing however after reading some of the work @chrisleach78 is doing on his own version of the ICT curriculum strands where he has defined it as Digital Technology I can see how this would open up the strand to focus a lot more on other aspects of pure technology development, functionality and usage. Accordingly after doing a little bit further reading up I now have a definition of Digital Technology I am happy with as a first version. Opinions and comments always welcome.
Our pupils are therefore taught the basics of programming, networking and how to build a computer. These skills are applied in relevant contexts to show pupils the relevance of these skills.
