It has just been announced on the Raspberry Pi website that the two-day Picademy sessions are coming to Scotland! Thanks to Google’s Digital Garage programme, the action-packed CPD is coming north of the border for the first time.
Four sessions are being held in the Mitchell Library, Glasgow on the following dates:
- 14/15 October 2016
- 25/26 October 2016
- 01/02 November 2016
- 28/29 November 2016
Full details and the application form can be found at the Raspberry Pi website: https://www.raspberrypi.org/picademy/google/
Hurry though – there are only 25 spaces for each session.
CodeClub, now part of the Raspberry Pi foundation, is also offering to come to schools in to run twilight CPD sessions. CodeClub is a series of extra-curricular lessons aimed at 9-11 year olds. In their own words:
Code Club Pro is our free, in-school, 2-hour workshop. Pick from three strands of learning: Computational Thinking, Programming, or the Internet and the Web. Submit a request for us to come to your school and run a free twilight session with you and your fellow educators. We will support you to feel confident and excited about delivering the new computing curriculum!
