From the Winchester House School ICT Handbook
"One of the key elements of ICT is that it allows children to express their creativity in many different ways from designing a poster to creating an entire magazine or putting together a presentation, taking photographs, producing a video or recording a radio show. Whenever the children are given the opportunity to create and design a product they are encouraged to think about the audience and alter their plans accordingly.
Digital creativity includes how the children can use computers to ‘make things happen’. This could be completing a puzzle game, altering formulae in a spreadsheet or even writing their own code to create their own computer program. It is one of our key aims to make our children digital creators rather than simply digital consumers. We want them to be able to create a game rather than simply play them, and to write code rather than just using a piece of software.
We want to inspire our children to become the programmers and software developers of the future and for them to realise that ICT can be used in so many ways in order to present and manipulate information."
