Computer Science Learning Tools
What is Computer Science?
Computer science is an extensive field of study that includes the design, analysis and theory behind computer hardware, software and software systems. Computer science has transformed our everyday lives, and looks continue to grow in the upcoming years. People who are trained as computer scientists can branch out into many different industries and roles, including, (but not limited to): IT, programming, software development, web development and digital marketing. Many people often confuse computer science with ICT, but the two subjects focus on very different aspects of modern technology. ICT includes the study of how to use computers within a business and how to develop and use computer applications. In contrast, computer science uses an amalgamation of theory, Maths and science to develop applications, such as video games and computer programs.
What are the Best Ways to use Computer Science Posters?
There are many ways to use computer science posters and it largely comes down to the learning styles, interests and personalities of the children you're teaching. For example, pupils who prefer independent learning can use computer science posters as reference points when undertaking classwork or revision. On the other hand, pupils who are more inclined to enjoy auditory learning and listening to their teacher or peers speak, could benefit from the posters' content being explained and read aloud to them. Ultimately, the best way to use a computer science poster in the classroom will come down to the class itself and how the designated teacher believes they will benefit the most.
Why Should Computer Science Posters be Displayed in the Classroom?
Computer science posters are brilliant classroom aids that can help to encourage your pupils to think through the theories and processes that exist behind different areas of computer science. If colourful, concise and informative posters are displayed in easy-to-see places around the room, pupils will be more likely to engage with the displayed information. Attractive computer science posters will also help to brighten your learning environment and create wall displays to be proud of. Any school visitors, parents, or teachers, alongside pupils of all ages, will appreciate a well-decorated and colourful classroom. Innovative designs, relatable images and bright colours will also help to encourage your class's creativity and enthusiasm for the topic in question. Computer science posters will help to engage your pupils and ensure they don't lose interest in topics that they find difficult. By breaking down complex topics, such as system units, peripherals and network protocols, you can help to stimulate learning and ensure that all pupils understand the computer science basics.
How can Computer Science Revision Guides Stimulate Learning?
Computer science revision guides can be used in a variety of diverse ways to help improve your pupils' understanding, stimulate learning and increase the likelihood of exam success. Computer science revision guides are ideal for use in the classroom, as they can supplement topics that are being taught throughout the year. Revision guides can be used as helpful reference points throughout a lesson, which should mean that pupils will be able to work out problems for themselves, instead of having to rely on asking the teacher. This will further help to promote independent learning and problem-solving. Computer science revision guides can also be used at home as a helper for children when they're completing homework. Parents often won't have the time or expertise to go through school work with their children, particularly in a specialist subject like computer science. It therefore makes sense to equip computer science pupils with a revision guide that will help them to solve problems and work through their homework independently. Finally, computer science revision guides can be used as brilliant preparation for pupils' exams. End of year exams often play a significant role in a computer science course, especially in GCSE. Revision guides are therefore the best way to ensure that pupils can go into their exams feeling confident that they understand the key information they need to succeed.
Why Should Computer Science Revision Guides be Used?
Computer science revision guides should be used by all schools because they help to demystify and break down difficult topic areas for pupils, regardless of academic ability. Topics such as system security threats, utility systems software and algorithms, can all be broken down into simple steps that will help to guide learners along the journey of subject understanding. Pupils can often be put off taking computer science as a subject, largely because it is seen by many as too complicated or difficult. However, a computer science revision guide will encourage pupils to break down those barriers to learning and engage with simple, thought-provoking content that shows them the basics of computer science and how to become more involved with the subject itself. This will in turn, inspire more pupils to study the subject at a higher level and hopefully promote computer science careers as imperative for technological success in the future.
What is a Computer Science Pocket Poster?
A Computer Science Pocket Poster is a concise revision guide that has been created with pupils in mind.
