I am excited to announce our new Picademy@Google
programme for educators, kicking off in Leeds, UK. This is another opportunity for primary, secondary and post-16 teachers to attend Raspberry Pi-flavoured computing and science training, but this time at a Google Digital Garage near where you live. The Digital Garages are a group of pop-up spaces – the first one located in Leeds Docks – which will help 200,000 British businesses learn crucial skills for the digital age, and use the power of the internet to reach more customers and grow faster.
The Picademy@Google courses will be run by hand-picked community members and educators, and will be a a mix of hands-on making, project-based learning and general hacking (think Picademy meets Raspberry Jam!). They will run alongside our definitive Picademy course and are, as always, completely free to attend for teachers.
We will be launching Picademy@Google in other UK cities as Google Digital Garages open over the next few months: to be informed about when one opens up near you, please sign up to our education newsletter
The Leeds Digital Garage will be open for six months, and we’ll be running a number of Picademy@Google courses there, so start spreading the news: sign-ups for teachers are open
