Introduction to networks
Two or more devices are connected together using networks.Files are sent from one device to another in the form of data packets. A file sent over a network is broken into small chunks of data known as data packets. These data packets are transmitted by the sender.
At the receiver end, the file is re-built by arranging data packets in order. Protocols define the set of rules that control the way the data is sent over the network.
This KS3 Computer Science module introduces networks to your students, explaining:
- Network and its types
- Wired and wireless networks
- Hardware components required for networking
