COMPUTING

This module sets out essential concepts and skills relating to the use of computational thinking
and coding to create simple computer programs.

LEARNING OUTCOMES

  • Understand key concepts relating to computing and the typical
    activities involved in creating a program.

  • Understand and use computational thinking techniques like
    problem decomposition, pattern recognition, abstraction and
    algorithms to analyse a problem and develop solutions.

  • Write, test and modify algorithms for a program using flowcharts
    and pseudocode.

  • Understand key principles and terms associated with coding and
    the importance of well-structured and documented code.

  • Understand and use programming constructs like variables, data
    types, and logic in a program.

  • Improve efficiency and functionality by using iteration, conditional
    statements, procedures and functions, as well as events and
    commands in a program.

  • Test and debug a program and ensure it meets requirements
    before release.

BENEFITS

  • Covers the key skills and main concepts relating to computational thinking and coding.

  • Certifies best practice in computational thinking and coding.

  • Introduces concepts and skills that are essential for anyone interested in developing specialised IT skills.

  • Assists in developing generic problem solving skills that are useful for everyone.

  • Developed with input from subject matter experts and practising computing professionals from around the
    world. This process ensures the relevance and range of module content.
