Communication & the Internet is..
The ability to communicate is a key aspect of human behaviour. A lot of technology that surrounds us today involves communication. Our devices communicate with each other so that they can work in sync. From Smart TV's, to our smartphones, tablets and desktop PC's, all our devices share information with each other so that we can work seamlessly from one device to another. In the near future the Internet of Things will connect every day devices, such as our fridge, coffee makers and more to the Internet so that they can work intelligently for us.
In this developing environment it is important for pupils to learn the key concepts that make up the networking and communication strand of the new Computing Programmes of Study. Each workshop that falls under this category has significant elements of it devoted to the teaching of this area; all of which will include a range of unplugged activities to make the concepts more accessible to the younger audience.
