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.

Pi Presentation

I have done four Pi workshops since we started our insPIre project… It's been great sharing all the exciting things we have been doing! Here's one of my presentations to share a 'snapshot' of our ins-PI-re Project.

Educating Educators

This Friday, I will be teaching a full class of educators about Raspberry Pi! The Provincial Professional Day Event is called Odyssey which is through the Langley School District to register go to www.thinklangley.com.

 

Here is the write-up about the workshop. Please excuse the grammar and spelling errors, somehow the edits didn't get to the Editor.
