Join our community

Picademy is for all educators, including classroom teachers, librarians, technology coaches, after-school and community educators, and beyond. If you’re an educator interested in bringing digital making and computing to your learners then this programme is for you!

Inspire digital making

We believe that computing and digital making is for everyone regardless of their background or prior experience. Picademy provides educators with the knowledge and skills they need to teach computing with confidence, creativity, and excitement.

Raspberry Pi Certified Educators:

  • Take their passion and expertise back to their educational environments and engage their learners in digital making.
  • Experience making from a learner’s perspective, and use this experience to inform their practice.
  • See computing devices as another material with which to create, rather than as solutions in their own right.
  • Connect with our global community of educators to share the opportunities, experiences, and challenges that are part of computing and digital making.
  • Continue to seek opportunities to develop their own subject knowledge, and to engage, inspire, and train other educators.
