New Workshop Packs developed in collaboration with Disney launched
Oddventurous Gaming: Play the Game...Be the Game!
This workshop brings the gaming knowledge and expertise of Disney and game development studio Playniac into an accessible classroom resource. Pupils 'become' the game using Playniac's Cat On Yer Head before moving onto Disney's Oddventure Land game with Phineas & Ferb. Learning how to deconstruct a game and then create their own, pupils develop critical thinking and problem-solving skills.
DigiSafe: Be Smart...Be Cyber Smart!
Developed with the Disney Club Penguin team this workshop gets pupils to think about e-safety in a unique way. Combining board games with a range of activities to encourage discussions allows pupils to learn about and put into practice e-safety principles. The workshop encourages the responsible use of the Internet and pupils get to practice what they have learnt within the Club Penguin virtual world.
Through combining Disney magic with the creativity and innovation of the Digital Schoolhouse we have developed resources that will engage and inspire both pupils and teachers. Aimed at the Key Stage 2 to 3 transition years these materials can be easily adapted to run as a series of lessons in secondary and primary schools.
