How is the class time structured?
1 The first 15 minutes we assemble the Raspberry Pis.
- This gives the children the chance to learn about the hardware, and how to trouble shoot any of their technical problems …
2 For the next 30 minutes the children work through various activity sheets of different levels.
- They get a sticker on completion of each activity, and a certificate on completion of the sheet.
- This means that they and I can see their learning progress
3 Show and tell …. the students can show their games on the projector to the class and describe how they made it.
4 The last 15 minutes is ‘Free Time’, for them to do what they like on the computer.
- Many love playing Minecraft on the network together, building and destroying their worlds they create together. [Minecraft Pi version comes with the Raspberry Pi.]
