Online privacy is not just about the password to your email account, and it is important to keep it protected in today’s digital world. This video investigates ways of keeping yourself safe online, exploring the responsibilities governments and individuals have regarding online privacy with experts from the London School of Economics and Cardiff University. Essential viewing for senior secondary and tertiary students students studying information technology. Show Less
In an age of rapidly advancing technology, the way we collect and share information has evolved to an extraordinary level. This video explains why our digital data is important and how it can be collected, exploring how ‘big data’ is a valuable asset for organisations and governments with experts from the London School of Economics and Cardiff University. Essential viewing for middle secondary students studying information technology. Show Less
Businesses, governments, and research groups use a range of tools to collect and analyse data, which is often about you and the things you do, to help them plan for success. This video looks at how and why different organisations collect your data, discussing the Cambridge Analytica scandal with experts from the London School of Economics and Cardiff University.

Hiding in the data we place online is knowledge that can inform and help people, but that can also cause harm if we aren’t careful. This video delves into patterns and machine learning, discussing why more information can be a double-edged sword with experts from the London School of Economics and Cardiff University.

Claire Hills discusses the graduate programme at the Bank of Ireland.
Katie Moore discusses her career progression to becoming a product manager for the Bank of Ireland.
Using the analogy problem of washing dirty dishes, this video explores the IPO model and pseudocode as tools to guide computational thinking. Students of lower secondary digital technologies will understand how using pseudocode can be an accessible preliminary step in the design process before attempting to write a program in their chosen syntax.

Introducing the concepts of abstraction, decomposition, algorithm design and pattern recognition, this video gets inside the ‘mind’ of a computer to understand why computational thinking this is a crucial first step to designing a successful program. Students and teachers of lower secondary digital technologies will find this an approachable foundation to computational thinking. Show Less
Even the most experienced programmers use simple visual models and techniques to plan an effective algorithmic solution. In this video, students are introduced to the IPO model and flowcharts as two such methods to abstract unnecessary information in a problem, decompose it into smaller tasks, a recognise patterns and repetition, and program a series of simple steps for a computer to follow.
