Final Raspberry Pi

Here is our final Raspberry Pi ins-PI-re Project reflection.

Thank you to SET-BC for giving us a Classroom Technology Grant for this school year!

It has been ins-PI-ring!

 

Please note: I was able to teach four workshops this school year about our project on the Raspberry Pi to educational professionals and a community group.

Lights, Camera, Pi!

SET-BC who graciously gave us our grant to do our insPIre Project came to video all the amazing insPIration happening in our PI class. The students were great at being in front of the camera and showing that they're all excited about coding! Thanks to Flo and Gary for allowing us to share our excitement about PI. We are looking forward to seeing the edited version in May.

ins-PI-ring Workshop

The workshop of ins-PI-ring Technology: Raspberry Pi went excitingly well! There was a full class of educators from teachers to Tech support to a Special Education Assistant. I believe everyone left ins-PI-red!

Here are some photos from the day:

Prepared for the Future

 

There is a wonderful article in Forbes about the importance of teaching young people to learn how to code and channelling their creativity to make their own video games. Click on the link below to read all about:
