These lesson by lesson resources give details of a series of computing lessons designed to relate fundamental concepts of database use and design to children in both Primary and Secondary Education (ages of 6 to 16). The skills and concepts developed in these lessons begin at a very simple level but progress to cover concepts such as Relational Databases and SQL.

The plugged in activities include the use of Relational Database software and Cloud Computing (spreadsheets) to solve a murder from a book. The step my step learning videos, lesson resources and some pre-setup Google Docs to do the cloud computing is stored here:
