I attended #Picademy North at Easter (2015). I committed then to a post about a Raspberry Pi project which would be a viable method of using Raspberry Pi’s in the classroom – initially for a coding club and subsequently for KS3 lessons. Six months later I have sources spreadsheet for all the components; completed my testing, and linked my updated KS3 scheme of learning. Here are my Raspberry Pi setup notes too and Physical Computing Notes.
My aim is two stage –
- Support my Digital Leaders with using Raspberry Pi’s with the Coding Club on Thursday lunchtimes
- Integrate the use of a half class set (x16) of Raspberry Pi’s for KS3 class use. I have worked out that this will be for 2 teaching units, one in Year 8 – using the Pibrella to model traffic lights using Scratch GPIO tied in with Flowol; and a Year 9 Control Project unit using Python, the RaspIO Protection board and the ModMyPi Raspberry Pi YouTube Workshop Kit (see bid).
