I do some ICT teaching as well as fixing/breaking stuff and am just wondering what people here think average pupils should (that's should not could with a lot of help from teachers!) be able to do at end of year/key stage.
Here's my first bash (I sure a lot of stuff missing but don't want to clog up with details as I want to produce a simple grid that can be used to assess ict skills as a child progresses through primary schools)
Foundation (age 4/5)
Use mouse to click on objects to cause actions/answer questions (Tizzy's toybox etc) by themselves
Draw pictures (2Simple 2Paint) and type name. Print them out by themselves
KS1 (Y2) (Age 6/7)
Switch computers on and off.
Use MSpaint type progs.
Save files (under whole class instruction)
Be able to use more complex software such as 2Paint a Picture by themselves
Be able to use more complex software (Textease/Powerpoint/Impress/Audacity/Webcams) under whole class instruction
Y4 (Age 8/9)
Open previously saved files under whole class instruction.
Be able to use PhotoStory/Textease by themselves
Y5 (Age 9/10)
Open and save files with minimal assistance.
Use Word Processor/Powerpoint/Impress with minimal assistance on cross-curricular work.
Use spreadsheets under whole class instruction.
KS2 (Age 10/11)
Use Wordprocessor/Powerpoint/Impress to produce good quality work.
Be able to produce a short stop animation movie.
Control/Programming (e.g FlowGo/FlowOl/)
(PS I personally do a lot of Scratch work with Y5/6 in my schools but I wouldn't expect that in most primaries)
