The Computing Progression Pathways suggests that at the orange level, on the theme of Hardware & Processing, a student should demonstrate that he/she:
- Knows that computers collect data from various input devices, including sensors and application software. (Abstraction)
- Understands the difference between hardware and application software, and their roles within a computer system. (Abstraction)
The following link to cs4fn articles that illustrate Hardware & Processing – Orange Level
- Researchers have come up with a way for people with visual impairment to get more out of images – a method for automatically turning photos of faces into raised pictures that people can feel with their fingers.
