web based PI academy (international)

Wed Apr 16, 2014 11:50 pm

Hi,

Does the foundation has any plan on doing web based PI academy?

I am not a teacher, but an Engineer in the micro electronic (ASIC).

But, I realized that I miss skills to get my kid interested in the PI.
I also would like to get involved with my kids School, to help them jump into the PI pool.

I might not be the right audience for PI academy, so do not feel shy letting me know.

Regards,

Ben

i would just like online. The Raspberry Pi site itself has loads of great activities to get started - and there are tons of YouTube channels about Raspberry Pi. Allen Heard does some fantastic lessons with his students, (primary) and his son (4 years old) - you can read about his projects on his blog here http://allenheard.wordpress.com/

Ben,

Have a look at the GPIO thread on the Picademy Forum - may give you some ideas for starters - also some projects that you could take into your kids' school.

Thank you both for your feedback.

I will look into this.

my background:

I did buy a PIringo and showed my 12 year old kid to turn led on and off via scratch based on the
color pointing underneath the cursor.
My kid was mildly interested, he played only for 1-2 hours with the PI.
I know his teacher is very found of technology, but My kid wont even bring the Pi to class. he usually likes to show off..
I do not want to impose the PI to him.

I had more succes with my 5 and 8 years old with gcompris.

regards,

benoit

Would it be possible to get some of the sessions available on YouTube to give some of us who would not be able to attend a Pi Academy to see what goes on?

I'm based in a developing nation and many of the educators here have little or no background in computing so it would be a good insight.

Oh and if possible a typical Pi Academy agenda would be good too.
