Computer Science Word Wall Display

Getting your classroom ready for back to school? Here is a fully editable PowerPoint presentation that contains 60 common computer science words and simple student-friendly definitions. They can be displayed as a permanent wall display or you can pick the words to display to compliment your current teaching goals. It is like having a computing dictionary on the walls of your classroom for the students to quickly refer to and can help with spellings of common computer science terminology as well as acting as a reminder of the meanings of computing terms. As it is fully editable you can add to and alter the definitions yourself to make a truly personalised learning wall display for your classes.

These terms are suitable for KS3 computing and GCSE computer science classes.

Each slide has been adjusted to print on A4 paper and it is recommended you print them in colour for maximum effect.

The colours of the key terminology refer to the following categories:
Blue – Programming and Algorithms
Red – Networks
Purple – Computer Systems
Green – Cyber security
Orange – Binary, Data and Logic
