Technology Questions

KS2 National Curriculum

‘Be discerning in evaluating digital content’

Digital content is a wide umbrella term that can include any information stored in a digital form. I have extended it here to include hardware that interacts with digital content such as a hand held gaming device or internet connected pacemaker

Questions to get pupils to ask about hardware, software or online technology.

  • What ages is it aimed at?
  • What does it do?
  • Who benefits from this?
  • Is it really free?
  • What are the benefits of using this?
  • What are the drawbacks of using this?
  • Who is it owned by?
  • How much personal information will the user need to provide?
  • Who own things made using this technology?
  • How easy is it to stop using this and delete your stuff?
  • Are their any safety issues for the user?
  • How easy is it to learn how to use this?
