This collection of lesson activity and enrichment day resources links computing to other curriculum areas in creative ways. Unplugged as well as on-screen activities are provided, featuring contributions from various organisations. Some activities require additional paid resources whilst most make use of free technology including MIT Scratch. Linked to the CAS Progression Pathways document, each resource contains a teaching plan and the other files required. Suitable for computing lessons in upper primary and lower secondary, the Digital Schoolhouse collection provides some engaging contexts for mentally challenging areas of the computing curriculum. Digital School House is associated and fully supported by Ukie.
