An easy-to-use illustrated dictionary that includes over 1000 words and meanings to help young learners understand key computing terms and concepts, essential for working with text and data, image editing, logic, programming, and communication technology. It includes words from the National Curriculum topics of algorithms, logical reasoning, computational thinking, data representation, computer networks, and digital devices.

From the basic program, file, online, browser, URL to the more technical toolbar, sprite, variable, Boolean, JavaScript, CMYK, sequence and simulation, this book supports parents and teachers as well as children with the key vocabulary needed to learn about computing and work with computers in the classroom and in their everyday lives.

A fully illustrated supplement provides extended information and builds vocabulary on topics ranging from computer components, hardware and software to computergames, how the Internet works, and coding terminology in block coding and Scratch going on to Python. This dictionary sits alongside the Oxford Primary Illustrated reference titles (the Primary Illustrated Dictionary, Thesaurus, Maths and Science titles), as well as supporting transition and lower secondary. It is also ideal for use with the International Primary Computing series for age 8+ and the Matrix Computing series for age 11+, and can be a key reference tool at school and at home.
