What will the children learn?

The key ICT skill that children will learn from the main activity in this project is how to drag and drop objects on screen. At the level of key ideas, they will learn that a computer representation allows the user to make choices and that different decisions produce different outcomes. Although these outcomes are relatively limited (the successful movement of objects and, in Activity 3, the activation of animations), the activities make the key point that the children can control the computer, rather than the other way round. This is a key point to be raised in a plenary at the end of the project.
