2017 ISTE Conference & Expo

Raspberry Pi at ISTE 2017

Educators, we’ll see you in San Antonio this summer! Staffers from the Raspberry Pi Foundation will be at the 2017 ISTE Conference & Expo to participate in a Raspberry Jam, panels, playgrounds, and talks. Come meet Philip Colligan, Carrie Anne Philbin, James Robinson, Courtney Lentz, Andrew Collins, and Matt Richardson and a bunch of Raspberry Pi Certified Educators to learn about how the Raspberry Pi Foundation puts the power of digital making into the hands of people all over the world. You’ll even have the chance to get hands-on with a Raspberry Pi computer. Here’s where you’ll find us (subject to last-minute changes):


Playground: ISTE Librarians Network June 26, 10:00–11:30 am at HBGCC Hemisfair Ballroom Foyer

Get hands-on with the Raspberry Pi computer and meet your fellow librarians.

Panel: Digital Making with Raspberry Pi June 28, 9:00–10:00 am at HBGCC 217D

The low cost of computing devices has opened up possibilities in the realm of project-based learning, which treats the computer as a material instead of just a tool. This panel of educators will share their first-hand experiences and outcomes from digital making in the classroom.


Lecture: Sending Raspberry Pi to Near Space June 28, 11:30 am–12:30 pm at HBGCC 301A

Hear one educator’s first-hand experience of launching high-altitude balloon flights with students, and learn about the benefits of such a project. You’ll get the inside scoop on how this aspirational real-world project, that involved sending a Raspberry Pi computer into the upper atmosphere, covered all the STEAM subjects and engaged students.
