A high quality computing education equips students to use computational thinking and creativity to understand and change the world. Computing has deep links with mathematics, science, and design and technology, and provides insights into both natural and artificial systems. The core of computing is computer science, in which students are taught the principles of information and computation, how digital systems work, and how to put this knowledge to use through programming. Building on this knowledge and understanding, students are equipped to use information technology to create programmes, systems and a range of content. Computing also ensures that students become digitally literate - able to use and express themselves through information and communication technology - at a level suitable for the future workplace and as active participants in a digital world.
