In computing so far this year the children have been receiving computing lessons based around technology in our lives. We have looked at how computers are connected and communicate with each other, including exploring how they communicate via packets.
Our most recent lesson involved the children working together in pairs. The children used 2write on Purple Mash to create a document together. This meant that both children could see, access and edit the document at the same time on their separate laptops so were able to work collaboratively. We learned that this was possible because the computers were communicating though the network that they were connected to.
