Following the annoucement at Ukie’s AGM, we return with our third national esports tournament and we are delighted to announce that the competition once again features the popular game Overwatch® by Blizzard Entertainment. Last year’s tournament succeeded to reach over 2,000 students who participated as either players or as part of the school or college’s event management, social media, press and community team.
We’re thrilled to announce that we have two brand new guest bloggers who will be publishing their monthly blog, right here on our website (very soon!). They'll be focusing on all things play-based learning and creative computing for your reading pleasure. Find out a little more about who they are and their connection to the programme.
On 13 September we’ll be kickstarting the new academic year with another jam-packed annual launch at Ukie HQ. We're celebrating Digital Schoolhouse powered by PlayStation landing in more locations across the UK, with our network of Schoolhouses and community of Lead Teachers continuing to expand.

Digital Schoolhouse recently travelled to Sheffield for The Children's Media Conference (CMC) 2018, welcoming professionals across sectors serving the children's and youth audience including: television production, interactive media, games, the academic community and more.
In true DSH fashion we decided to shake things up and introduce delegates to the world of Esports.
The national esports tournament concluded last month, but whilst game play ceases, it gives us an opportunity to look back at the event and showcase some of the amazing work that went on behind the scenes.
At DSH, our vision is to bridge the gap between education and industry, and throughout the tournament we highlighted careers education in esports, video games and wider tech at every opportunity: from players to production, and even the winners' trophy…
Last week the programme hosted it's second Ingenuity Day - formally known as Lead Teacher Meeting - of the academic year. Due to the ever-expanding number of schools involved in the programme, the day was hosted in two different locations for our teachers across the UK. Namely, The Studio School Liverpool and the Ukie offices in Central London.
Returning for a second year and with much anticipation, the Digital Schoolhouse National Esports Tournament 2018 has finally kicked off!
Last week, Digital Schoolhouse (DSH) hosted its first Lead Teacher Meeting of the new academic year, bringing together our community of Digital Schoolhouse teachers to harness and grow their programme outreach and development.
