Digital Schoolhouse applications have been extended to 5pm on 1 May. You can apply via the website.

It's the perfect time to get your child's school to sign up for Digital Schoolhouse. Not only does this let them participate in the schools esports tournaments, but also offers a whole host of video game adjacent learning to enrich the curriculum.

It's supported by the video game industry and has led to trips to video game studios for students to experience first-hand what it's like to work on video games.

"Digital Schoolhouse is a not-for-profit programme which enables primary schools to experience free creative computing workshops from their local Schoolhouse. Combined with ingenious computing, the programme also engages thousands of students with its pioneering, immersive careers education. Schoolhouses are not charged for their participation in the programme, nor for the support that they receive."

Many of the resources have also been adapted to work in an isolation scenario and don't need an expensive kit or complex knowledge. Using video games in this way is an effective tool for learning.

You can also check out the Great Educational Video Games list on the database that AskAboutGames support for a wide list of games that offer more general potential learning outcomes.

In light of the evolving COVID-19 situation, Digital Schoolhouse have extended applications until 5pm on 1 May.

Send the application link here to your school for them to not miss out on this great opportunity.
