Databases: Unplugged & Plugged in

The Digital Schoolhouse is excited to announce the first in a series of publications through the famous CS Unplugged website.

This activity uses Unplugged-style activities to introduce the idea of databases, relational databases, queries, reports and leads to a "plugged-in" experience as follow-up.

This report (based on practitioner research) gives details of a series of computing lessons designed to relate fundamental concepts of database use and design to children in Primary and Secondary Education (ages of 6 to 16). The skills and concepts developed in these les- sons begin at a very simple level but progress to cover abstract concepts such as Relational Databases. The series has been aligned to match the scope, range and targets recommended in the Computing At Schools document A Curriculum for Computing.
