Digital Devices

A part of ICT children will be exposed to in KS2 is digital devices. These are pieces of technology that are used with computers, such as printers or keyboards, and the understanding of these that children have already will be reinforced. They will also be introduced to some digital devices they may not yet be familiar with.

Digital devices are pieces of hardware for computers and include any technology which can understand binary code - in other words, digital devices speak the same language as computers. There are many different digital devices: monitors, microphones, speakers, cameras, scanners etc. All of these pieces of technology are digital devices. You will probably have used many of these in the classroom or at home.
