First mass Raspberry Pi workshop held in UK



 The first Raspberry Jamboree was held last weekend in Manchester in a bid to bring coding know how to the classroom and head off a looming skills crisis in IT education.


The event provided hands on Raspberry Pi workshops and lectures to 350 teachers and educators.


It also provided a platform for an interactive debate on the future direction of IT in education and highlight how innovations such as Raspberry Pi are driving change in the existing curriculum.


Led by a panel including Professor Steve Furber (Principal designer of the BBC Micro), Pete Lomas (Raspberry Pi co-founder), and young, enthusiastic teachers, the debate was broadcast via a ticketed live video stream broadcast around the globe.


David Deventer, marketing director at CPC, which helped organise the event alongside Raspberry Jam, commented: "In this world of technology, it's not enough for students to only know how to switch on a pc and use basic office software; they need to understand the science behind it.


"With fantastic products like Raspberry Pi, which help students to learn code, we're halfway there but we need to ensure that we're doing all we can to enable teachers to nurture these skills."
