Information technology (IT) in the school curriculum is not only a ‘cross-curricular skill’, it is also a component of the technology curriculum (a foundation subject) and an element of the other subject pillars of the NC. In the science documents it appears in the programmes of study (PoS), largely as a tool but also as an object of study:
• At key stage (KS) 3 pupils should begin to ‘use information and data accessed from a computer’ (IT as a tool) and ‘be able to identify the main features of an information transmission system and the ways in which data are coded, handled and transmitted’ (IT as a subject of study).
