Now that we've wrapped up Picademy Austin, we've concluded our United States educator training pilot for 2016. In one year, we've trained 160 educators and we plan to train even more in 2017. If you weren't able to join us this year, please stay tuned for updates about the 2017 Picademy program. In the meantime, we want to make sure that you know about our expanded professional development offerings.
We are delighted to announce a new way for educators to learn about digital making: two free online training courses, available anywhere in the world. The courses will run alongside our current live educator training offerings (Picademy, Skycademy, and Code Club Teacher Training) and are facilitated by FutureLearn, a leading platform for online educational training. Sign-ups are now open, and the courses themselves start in mid-February 2017.
- Teaching Physical Computing with Raspberry Pi and Python
- Teaching Programming in Primary Schools
As educators, you might find these courses useful as a refresher, or as something you’d like to encourage your colleagues to use as a handy ‘CPD at home’ session. We would also appreciate your support in promoting this new training program through your networks.
