Tecademy for Teachers - Autumn 2016 - register now - Software Cornwall

Cornwall Tecademy

As part of Software Cornwall’s objective to support education in the community we are pleased to announce our two day Tecademy specifically designed for teachers.

After the huge success of our first Tecademy in May 2016, we will be running our second Tecademy in the autumn of 2016 (exact date TBC) at a central location in Cornwall over a weekend.  To encourage the use of computers across the curriculum, Tecademy is open to all teachers (computer science, science, maths, music, English etc).

To get a flavour of the activities, the success of the last Tecademy has been blogged here:
