CAS Birmingham - Raspberry Pi session
Wednesday, July 17, 2013 from 3:45 PM to 5:15 PM (BST)
Birmingham, United Kingdom
CAS Hub Birmingham
Audience: Primary/Secondary teachers
This is a chance to get together, have a play with a Pi, check out some of the resources available to help, and generally come up with ideas about how to support pupils in using them, whether in the classroom or in pupils' homes.
As a CAS hub leader I've been given a set of 15 Raspberry Pi's with the brief to "get them into the hands of children" (rather than teachers). The plan is to have an initial training session and I'll be looking for suggestions as to the best way to then get them in use!
I don't claim to be an expert, so would welcome input from anybody with any good ideas or more experience of them than I've got!
I'm also seeking a venue more suited to using the Pi's, ideally somewhere with monitors that support HDMI or composite video in. If you might be able to offer a room for us to use, or USB keyboards/mice then that would be very helpful....
Refreshments available. I look forward to seeing you. Please email Nick Frost (firstname.lastname@example.org) for further details. I realise this is very late in the term - please let me know if other dates/times would work better for you.....
The Computing At School group (CAS) aims to promote the teaching of Computing at school. CAS was born out of our excitement with our discipline, combined with a serious concern that many students are being “turned off” computing by a combination of factors that have conspired to make the subject seem dull and pedestrian. Our goal is to put the excitement back into Computing at school.
The Computing At School group (CAS) is a grass roots organisation, whose energy, creativity, and leadership comes from its members. CAS is a collaborative partner with the BCS through the BCS Academy of Computing, and has formal support from other industry partners. Membership is open to everyone, and is very broad, including teachers, parents, governors, exam boards, industry, professional societies, and universities. We speak for the discipline of computing at school level, inc. FE, and not for any particular interest group.
