I am a behaviour specialist working in Alternative Provision teaching young people excluded from mainstream education.
My background from many years ago is in teaching Drama and Dance but more recently I have specialised in teaching PSHE and Cooking, so it is only natural that I should have been asked to teach Computing to our students.
I have chosen to use the Raspberry Pi to help me do this and after attending Picademy (a wonderful free training course for teachers run by the Raspberry Pi Foundation) I have summoned up the courage to begin using the little computers in class.
On these pages I will share my experiences, insights, opinions and resources.
I am not a computing specialist but a keen teacher finding their way and willing to try anything to engage disaffected SEN students in Computer Science.
My maximum class size is six so this is a class set of RPis plus one for the teacher!
