Computing

There are a lot of exciting changes taking place in the development of our Computing curriculum here at Heber.

Heber Goes Google!

As many of you may already know, Heber has 'Gone Google'! This really exciting development means that all of our staff and pupils now have their own secure G Suite for Education accounts that will be used to enhance the teaching of Computing as well as many other subjects across the curriculum. G Suite for Education, alongside Google Classroom, is used by over 60 million pupils worldwide and provides secure and safe access to Google's core apps, such as Google Docs, Google Sheets and Gmail.

Our accounts are provided through the London Grid for Learning and the children's use of all apps is restricted and monitored by their class teacher. Similarly, Digital Citizenship lessons every half term will ensure children understand how to use the internet responsibly. Each class will be introduced to the different elements of G Suite throughout the year and it has been made clear to all children that the G Suite is for learning purposes only.
