The Raspberry Picademy is a free professional development experience for primary and secondary teachers, open to individuals around the world.
Over the course of two days, 24 teachers get hands-on with computing here at Pi Towers in Cambridge, and discover the many ways in which the Raspberry Pi can be used in the classroom. No experience is necessary; the Foundation’s Education Team will help you discover practical ways in which Raspberry Pi can support and further your teaching of the new curriculum. At the end of the two days, attendees are pronounced Raspberry Pi Certified Educators and join an active network of teachers from around the world.
On occasion we take Picademy on the road to help reach as many educators as possible. Thanks to Google.org we have extra dates at Google’s Digital Garage in Leeds. Sign-ups for Picademy@Google are open.
