Computing Objectives KS3

Finding specific people in the world of work who use each objective in their day to day job is always going to be difficult, many of the objectives in KS3 underpin bigger concepts. However there are a few companies and topic pages that may be found useful through the hyperlinked topic headings below.

Objectives KS3
Design, use and evaluate computational abstractions that model the state and
behaviour of real-world problems and physical systems
Understand several key algorithms that reflect computational thinking [for example,
ones for sorting and searching]; use logical reasoning to compare the utility of
alternative algorithms for the same problem
Use two or more programming languages, at least one of which is textual, to solve a
variety of computational problems; make appropriate use of data structures [for
example, lists, tables or arrays]; design and develop modular programs that use
procedures or functions
Understand simple Boolean logic [for example, AND, OR and NOT] and some of its
uses in circuits and programming; understand how numbers can be represented in
binary, and be able to carry out simple operations on binary numbers [for example,
binary addition, and conversion between binary and decimal]
Understand the hardware and software components that make up computer systems,
and how they communicate with one another and with other systems
Understand how instructions are stored and executed within a computer system;
understand how data of various types (including text, sounds and pictures) can be
represented and manipulated digitally, in the form of binary digits
Undertake creative projects that involve selecting, using, and combining multiple
applications, preferably across a range of devices, to achieve challenging goals,
including collecting and analysing data and meeting the needs of known users
Create, re-use, revise and re-purpose digital artefacts for a given audience, with
attention to trustworthiness, design and usability
Understand a range of ways to use technology safely, respectfully, responsibly and
securely, including protecting their online identity and privacy; recognise inappropriate
content, contact and conduct and know how to report concerns
