Pi Academy in Malaysia

Fri Nov 13, 2015 3:19 am

I am interested to be a certified trainer and to start a Pi Academy in Malaysia.

Intention is to setup a centre to train teachers and students on computer science, raspberry pi and programming.

Anyone here could advise who in Pi Academy UK or Raspberry Pi Foundation I should contact? And are there any plans to reach out beyond UK and US? If not, how can I help?

Picademy is currently only available in the UK and US. We don't currently have plans to start spreading the approach to other parts of the world, although it's something that we'd like to do in future.

In the meantime, sign up to the education newsletter here: https://www.raspberrypi.org/education/newsletter/

You can also find lots of free resources for teachers and students here: https://www.raspberrypi.org/resources/

It's been a year since my the last post.

Phil, I just want to let you know I am still having the same intention of having Pi Academy in Malaysia, or even around Asia. Last year there were no plans by the Foundation. I hope this year or next there will be. Just know I am still waiting. :D

We grew frustrated at having to tell people that we didn’t have plans to provide Picademy in their region in the foreseeable future, so we decided to find a way to reach educators around the world with a more accessible training format.

We’re delighted to announce a new way for people to learn about digital making from Raspberry Pi: two free online CPD training courses, available anywhere in the world.
