The Computing Progression Pathways suggests that at the white level, on the theme of Communication & Networks, a student should demonstrate that he/she:
- Understands the hardware associated with networking computer systems, including WANs and LANs, understands their purpose and how they work, including MAC addresses. (Abstraction) (Algorithmic Thinking) (Decomposition) (Generalisation)
