History of Computers (GCSE Computer Science and KS3 Computing)

This lesson teaches the pupils about the history of computers. It uses animations to tell the story in an interesting and entertaining way. As the pupils learn the history they fill in a worksheet which you can go through with the whole class. They then complete a word search identifying the key people in developing technology and finally they play a game to recap what they have learnt.

Suitable for GCSE Computer Science classes and KS3 Computing and ICT classes.
