I could not think of anybody better to help out. :) What we're really after are Pi Electronics demos or something that really uses the Pi for what it's good at rather than a simple PC replacement. We're not planning to do live streaming, but we do plan to film the event, so it might be go...

Ideas for teaching with Raspberry Pi

At the Raspberry Jam in Cambridge I shared my ideas for teaching with the Raspberry Pi.

Re: Raspberry Jam in Cambridge on 14th July

The breakout meetings are straight after the Cambridge jam on Saturday. If it's something that you can easily carry a distance and isn't fragile, then it would be great to bring along.

Re: Raspberry Jam in Cambridge on 14th July

We're keeping it slightly under wraps, but we're going to be using quite a few of the pubs on Saturday for break out meetings after 3.30pm. I would like to stress that all pubs selected are family friendly and will allow in under 18s.

Agenda 1.30pm start - 3.30pm discussions, demos and a panel session. Speaking slots will be 10 minutes a piece ...
