Date of Session: 12/12/14
Session Title: Session 5 The Internet
Description of Task Software and skills developed in the session, including screenshots and annotations and notes:
To consider the internet in the National Curriculum
To think about how the internet and e-mail works and practical ideas how we can tech this to the children. To consider aspects of e-safety and how we can help the children to keep themselves safe while online To look at search engines and their use.
To consider web 2.0.
Brief outlines of ideas for the inclusion of the ICT skills and software considered into cross curricular links with specific references to the National Curriculum and other documentation for ICT and relevant subjects:
The New Computing Curriculum
The National Curriculum for Computing aims to ensure that all pupils: can understand and apply the fundamental principles and concepts of computer science, including abstraction, logic, algorithms and data representation can analyse problems in computational terms, and have repeated practical experience of writing computer programs in order to solve such problems can evaluate and apply information technology, including new or unfamiliar technologies, analytically to solve problems are responsible, competent, confident and creative users of information and communication technology. Attainment Targets
By the end of each key stage, pupils are expected to know, apply and understand the matters, skills and processes specified in the relevant programme of study.
Key stage 1
Pupils should be taught to:
§ understand what algorithms are; how they are implemented as programs on digital devices; and that programs execute by following precise and unambiguous instructions § create and debug simple programs
§ use logical reasoning to predict the behaviour of simple programs § use technology purposefully to create, organise, store, manipulate and retrieve digital content § recognise common uses of information technology beyond school § use technology safely and respectfully, keeping personal information private; identify where to go for help and support when they have concerns about content or contact on the internet or other online technologies.
The Internet - a brief introduction
Internet: Inter = across net = network
A computer network is two or more computers connected to each other either with cables or through a wireless system via a hub. A hub is a device which manages the flow of data between computers. The Internet is many computer networks connected together throughout the world. Set up in 1969 by the US army to protect their computer systems
How the Internet works:
The information from your home is split into multiple packets and sent through many routers to find their destination. The information packets have only so many lives. For example, if a router is broken the information has to travel through another. If this happens more than the amount of life the specific packet has, it’ll die and the connection will fail.
Web 2.0 covers a range of technologies, services and trends underpinned by the growth of a critical mass of internet users. It is about using the internet as a platform for simple, lightweight services that leverage social interactions for communication, collaboration, and creating, remixing and sharing content. Typically, these services develop rapidly, often relying on a large community of users to create and add value to content or data. e.g Facebook
Benefits for pupils learning:

Youtube- how the interent works
Youtube- Phil Bag how emails are sent across the interent.
