About:

Digital Literacy Services offer mobile app and game development workshops to schools around the country. 

Our workshops are based around pupils designing and building their own mobile apps and video games. We create real mobile apps that could theoretically be sold on the Google Play Store the same day. Its no secret how prevalent mobile apps have become in our daily lives, but we want to show pupils how they can start creating their own.

Our workshops vary in length from 1 hour sessions to a whole day.

1 hour workshops

We can do a lot in an hour. Each pupil will design and build a simple mobile application or game and test it on a smartphone. Our main objective in this time would be to give different perspectives on computational logic and thinking.

Full day workshops

A fun and engaging workshop that focuses on the principles of programming and software development. Pupils will design and build a variety of different apps and games.

 

We also have lots of other interesting and fun activities that will help pupils understand how different digital technologies work and communicate.

The software development tools we use are freely available and pupils can access their work at home to show parents or continue on working on their app.

We believe this is one of the best ways to introduce pupils to programming and software development and will give them a head start on this new and important topic.
