Building on feedback to my initial bash at a Programme of Study for ICT which fits on to one side of A4 I have created a new draft PoS for ICT.
I have formatted as per the draft PoS that the DfE published for the core subjects (i.e. with PoS on the left and notes/guidance on the right).
ICT Programmes of Study: Key Stages 1 to 4
The National Curriculum for ICT aims to ensure that all pupils are able to operate effectively as a citizen in the 21st century.

|Programme of Study||Notes and guidance|
Pupils should be taught to:
Information technologies include all digital media (e.g. Internet, computer programs, apps, ebooks, digital video, etc). They impact on culture, ways of knowing, meaning making, ways of interacting, the nature of disciplines, and ways of working.
Understanding information management includes knowledge about data structures and the differences between data, information and knowledge.
A PLN includes f2f as well as 'technology mediated' information exchange/knowledge building. It would include understanding about digital identities and being able to manage their own digital identities appropriately.
An issue might include a problem, debate or question that they need to investigate. Approaches to investigation could include: searching for information, critical appraisal, data handling, data logging, use of dynamic modelling including simple programming. It would involve the ability to choose and use appropriate tools, as well as understanding of Boolean logic, search strategies, and algorithms/heuristics.
Re-presentation of information might include the use of hypermedia, multi-media, dynamic models, and procedural representations. It brings in ‘digita 'making' and creativity, as well as choosing and using appropriate tools, and elements of Computer Science such as coding/programming.
Computational thinking provides a way of looking at the world and analysing problems. It includes the ability to use computer programs to model ‘physical world’ scenarios.
What is wrong with this - or perhaps more helpfully how would you improve it?
