Resources Restyled

Back in April, when we launched a revamp of our whole website, we introduced a section of free learning resources. Recently we’ve been working on a new and improved design for the layout of this material, and we’re launching it today for a selection of our resources.

The new look and feel of our free learning resources

Our new in-house designer Sam has produced the templates along with a brilliant set of icons, components, characters, illustrations and bespoke GPIO and wiring diagrams.

The Learn and Make activities are:

We have also revamped a number of Teach resources, each containing lesson plans and links to the Programme of Study:

As well as a new guide to for teachers:

We think they’re looking great – and hope you all do too!

We’ll be migrating all of our resources into the new template in the coming weeks. The content still all lives on GitHub, and you can still collaborate; if you’re a regular contributor, you’ll notice that there are some extra files to make the templates work.

New recipe cards for our learning resources

Gotta collect ’em all!

 

Remember all our resources are available for free under a Creative Commons licence, so you can print, copy, share, modify and do anything you want with the materials – we don’t want to restrict educators in any way! We know some of our Raspberry Pi Certified Educators from Picademy have been using their own modified versions of our worksheets to teach the Computing curriculum – it’s a great way of tailoring the material to the needs of their own students.

Those of you who are coming to see us at BETT this week will see we’ve also been giving out recipe cards for each of these new style resources, which again have been beautifully designed by Sam. Teachers – if you miss us at BETT, you can download these recipe cards to print out for your wall displays.

Why are all the education team wearing lab-coats? Is it to protect them from the exploding balloons?

Avatar

More to the point, why aren’t they wearing ear defenders ?
I bet they didn’t even fill out their mission statements and risk assessment forms.
Health & Safety would throw a fit.

Now imagine the balloons are 100 times the size, and filled with hydrogen instead of helium. I’m going through that one now and I think I’m giving a particular H&S person a heart attack …

The gimp suits didn’t make it back from the suppliers in time.

I still think I win with “Social Animals” yesterday. :D

Would it be really remiss of me to request that the resources are also made available in PDF format from this website, or have a missed something somewhere?

Avatar

I believe that is it in the works..

You really should tell us more about your wonderful Illustrator. And sell framed prints and t-shirts with these drawings.

Sam sits at the desk behind mine and looks like a normal human, but possesses apparently magical powers of Make It Look Awesome.

He is also unflappable, unstoppable and never stops smiling. We’re not sure what’s wrong with him.

Excellent. Are there any offline versions available that I can manually copy across to the Pi in some form (pdf or html)?

Our Pi isn’t connected to the internet and if I let the kids read the webpages via some other internet connected device, they’d be on youtube the minute my back is turned!

PDFs are coming soon.

I want to output them as HTML and package for inclusion in Raspbian for offline use. Would be nice :)
