Communicating with Others

In KS2 ICT children will be taught about various aspects of online communication, for example podcasts and file sharing websites. They will also look at social interaction online, in places such as social media websites and internet forums, and how this allows them to interact with others in places all over the world.

The biggest impact the internet has had on our lives is the ease with which it allows communication with people all over the world, whether shopping, playing games or just chatting. Communication with others is social interaction. One of the most popular uses of ICT is for communicating with others. People use ICT to share information, opinions, news, music and work. Many people also enjoy using ICT to keep in contact with friends and family.
