  • Shows an awareness for the quality of digital content collected. (Evaluation)
  • Uses a variety of software to manipulate and present digital content: data and information. (Algorithmic Thinking)
  • Shares their experiences of technology in school and beyond the classrom. (Generalisation) (Evaluation)
  • Talks about their work and makes improvements to solutions based on feedback received. (Evaluation)
