Every lunch time since September we have been running an eports tournament with Digital Schoolhouse. This has involved students taking on roles such as manager, shoutcaster and others in what is actually a huge industry worldwide - the competitive playing of a computer game in front of an audience for (potentially) huge prizes. The Digital Schoolhouse Super Smash Bros.
The establishment of the first ever National Centre for Computing Education marks a landmark decision for computing education across the country.
Schoolhouses across Warwickshire & Coventry successfully launched and delivered the anticipated DSH Warwickshire Roadshow earlier this month. In an attempt to support children in hard to reach areas and promote the many benefits of play-based learning, Stratford-upon-Avon was certainly the place to be as primary pupils and teachers came together for a fun and educational day as part of the Digital Schoolhouse programme.
It’s that time of the year again and we’re thrilled to announce that applications for joining the Digital Schoolhouse programme are now open!
This academic year, the programme confidently hit it’s 30-school milestone and in September 2018 we aim to propel this figure to new heights; expanding to further reaches of the UK and inspiring even more students in computing education. To do this, we need you.
We are delighted to introduce our newest supporter for the Digital Schoolhouse programme, Scirra.
Founded in 2011 by brothers, Ashley and Thomas Gullen, Scirra develops and markets software which enables people who don’t know how to programme, to make video games.
The much awaited Royal Society review on the state of computing education in schools was revealed last Friday. “After the Reboot: Computing Education in UK Schools” presents a comprehensive picture of the current delivery of computing and highlights just how far the UK is falling short of its targets.
