Using the J2Data Database

This week I taught children in year four at St Columba’s how to create a database. We created our own toy database based on the premise we were running our own toy shops where we sold our favourite toys.  The software made this quite straightforward to do. We decided what fields we wanted to include in our databases and then gathered information about our favourite toys. One particular child really went to town with this work. Below you can see her toy database with all 115 records!
