Re: Working with aging school computers

Hi all It looks to me like the OP has made a useful suggestion on how to run a club on aging school PCs which could help other Code Clubs. I haven't seen the changes to the title and the moves of the post around the forum so can't comment on that. but I do know we welcome all volunteers having an e...

Re: Working with aging school computers

Actually x86 IS relevant. If you don't specify the architecture you are talking about the normal assumption is that you are talking about ARM based PIs. PeterO Well I've posted in the Code Club forum, which is not a Pi specific forum, and x86 was not relevant to the point I was making in my origina...

Re: Working with aging school computers

I changed the title because x86 wasn't really important. By 'Old' I meant the computers were old, it had no bearing on their processor architecture. I've also added Raspberry Pi Desktop to the Debian references to alleviate some confusion. At this point this thread is such a mess it may as well be d...

Re: Old (x86) School Computers

Since we've started back this term I've had a few challenges with the school library computers, they are showing their age and I've lost a fair bit of session time getting everyone working, some PCs don't have working sound from one week to the next, and the flash plugin has been temperamental so w...

If you want to use Python with Minecraft PC Edition, then check out this Bukkit plugin:

Re: How do you set up Scratch accounts in your club?

Oh of course, nice! That looks great! Did you know that there is a Code Club Username Generator project that does something similar to this? It's available at: https://codeclubprojects.org/en-GB/scratch/username-generator/ or in our new format at: https://projects.raspberrypi.org/en/projects/usernam...

Re: How do you set up Scratch accounts in your club?

I used a scratch teacher account. I pregenerated a list of usernames in Excel and uploaded them as a CSV file to the scratch site. I then mail-merged them into a word template and printed the result so each student could take home a slip with their details on. I also recorded who had which username ...
