​​Programming languages

​A computer does not understand an algorithm directly. To make a computer understand our algorithm, it is translated into a language which will be easier for it to understand.
In this topic, the different types of programming languages such as graphical programming languages and text-based programming languages are introduced.

This ​KS3 Computer Science module introduces ​​​programming languages to your students, explaining:

  • ​​Graphical programming language
  • Text-based programming language
