Last week Crumpsall Lane Primary School were fortunate to receive 4 Raspberry Pis funded by Google and distributed to TeachFirst schools across the country.
This week we started our Raspberry Pi club with 8 year 6 pupils and we decided the club would be entirely pupil-led, in so much as I simply gave them the boxes and stood back. I didn’t even tell them what it was 🙂
After the first 40 min session they’d: worked out it was a small computer; sourced what they needed to set it up; identified that they needed an operating system; found the operating system online and downloaded it 🙂
I tweeted how they were getting on, the questions they were asking and the means by which they were finding out information using #clpspiclub – I’ll be doing the same next Friday lunch during Pi Club session 2!
