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 problem solving and computational thinking. Building on this knowledge and understanding, students are equipped to use digital technologies to create solutions, systems and a range of content.
Computing has deep links with mathematics, science, and design and technology, and provides insights into both natural and artificial systems. Computing ensures that students become digitally literate and are able to use and express themselves and develop their ideas through information and communication technology at a level suitable for the future workplace and as active participants in a 21st Century digital world.
Everyone should learn how to code, it teaches you how to think.
