Digital Schoolhouse

Digital Schoolhouse

Free computing and programming teaching resources.

If you are an ICT teacher in the UK, you may already be tackling the implications of Michael Gove's announcement earlier this year that from September 2012 schools will be given the freedom to deliver the ICT curriculum.  OCR and AQA have already piloted new computer science and computing GCSEs and the challenge for teachers will be to develop new tools, activities and lesson plans to teach everything from coding to networks.

The Digital Schoolhouse is a project for the teaching of Computer Science and ICT offering free resources to teachers and schools.  As well as being able to download lessons plans and ideas for activities, teachers can book places on their teacher training courses run in association with Brunel and Reading Universities.

In addition, the Computing at School (CAS) Working group website has much more information about government plans for the curriculum.  Joining the CAS Community connects you with other educators and gives you access to resources and newsletters.  For more information click here.
