As many people will be aware, the Raspberry Pi £25 children's computer project will be open for orders any day/week soon. The Government have okayed the scrapping of ICT from the curriculum and the replacement with proper IT.
But there's a catch. Not all current ICT teachers will necessarily have the skills and knowledge to exploit this opportunity and fully implement a really good IT curriculum.
If we could form an "army" of Raspberry Pi coding advocates then we could help support a proper IT curriculum in Cornwall and really make a massive difference to our children and communities. The meetup will discuss the Raspberry Pi project and ideas on how we can make things happen.
Anyone up for joining the army?
