As a school that was ‘Highly Commended’ in the ICT Excellence Awards in 2018, we were delighted to be one of the four schools in Northern Ireland that was awarded Digital Schoolhouse (DSH) status in Summer 2018.
Computing forms such an integral part in today’s society and is used daily to help us solve many problems. Within the ever growing ICT sector, 1.4 million jobs relating to ICT will be available but the demand is higher than the number of people qualified.
We are an innovative and forward-thinking school, committed to developing our students into well-rounded, confident and successful young men and women. The Digital Schoolhouse is to allow us to use our computing expertise and resources to offer primary schools access to the computing curriculum. We can support schools’ teaching and learning, and we hope our workshops will be engaging and innovative.
St Malachy’s High School Castlewellan is delighted to be participating in the Digital Schoolhouse programme as an extension to the work which we have already undertaken with our current feeder primary schools. The support and resources which Digital schoolhouse offer us will greatly enhance the learning experiences of our primary school pupils.
The Coleshill School is proud and excited to be a Digital School House (DSH). We are 11-19 comprehensive school, situated in North Warwickshire. We are currently teaching GCSE Computing at KS4 and follow an interactive computing curriculum in KS3.
As part of the Digital Schoolhouse organisation we wish to offer a range computing based activities in our new computer science suite. These activities will include a range of fun, interactive tasks, that will develop students understanding of computational thinking through the use of both plugged and unplugged activities.
At the Forest School, we are delighted to be taking part in the Digital Schoolhouse initiative. We recognise the importance of computing, programming, and creative gaming as a vital component of a 21st century education. We are offering schools a brilliant opportunity to visit us, develop their creative skills, and make use of our advanced computing facilities to make their ideas a reality. Providing Digital Schoolhouse sessions and workshops enable us to help you prepare your students for a brand new world of technology. We tend to run half day workshops each Friday.
TeachICT NT are thrilled to be part of the growing Digital Schoolhouse team. We want to increase our Computer Science support to local primary schools through hands on, unplugged activities. We will deliver sessions in your school for KS1 and KS2 classes that aim to improve the computational thinking skills of staff and students alike. We look forward to working with you!
