Digital Schoolhouse is constantly innovating to help and support members of our community. Discover what we've been up to.
The Mayor of London has launched a new £5m programme, which will fund access to digital skills for young people across the Capital, ensuring the future of the London's thriving technology sector. Alongside this programme was the release of the Computing Curriculum Guide, which the Digital Schoolhouse and Ukie are proud to have collaborated with the London Enterprise Panel (LEP) and the Education Foundation thinktank to produce.
This special event is being organised in partnership with Albion on 19th & 20th October. With a keynote delivered by Apple to kick start the event, it looks like an exciting couple of days are in store.
Computing is fun and learning through play is a great way to both teach and learn computing. Therefore, we have begun to extract and separately document some of the standalone activities that have been working so well in our workshops. Each activity is designed to be a short, fun and unplugged way to introduce an important computing concept (or two).
Suitable for almost all age groups, the sky is the limit with the range of possibilities for our extendable play based activities.
As the Digital Schoolhouse is an LSEF project we are required to collect data that will help us measure any potential impact that we make with our participating schools. To help us measure the significance of this we need control data.
We are looking for participation from primary schools to help us meet this goal.
Published by Hodder and funded by Microsoft and the DfE, CAS has produced a free toolkit for teachers. The QuickStart Computing CPD toolkit is designed to help deliver inspiring computing lessons in primary and secondary schools.
The tookits (one for primary teachers and the other for secondary) pull together resources from leading experts in the field, and are designed to be ‘everything you need to know’ to deliver inspirational lessons.
