Tecademy for Teachers

Saturday November 25 @ 9:00 AM - Sunday November 26 @ 4:30 PM

Cornwall Tecademy – Free Teacher Training

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, delivered by Raspberry Pi certified educators and industry experts.

After the huge success of our previous Tecademy workshops, we will be running our third Tecademy in the autumn of 2017 (over the weekend of 25th and 26th November 2016) at Bluefruit in Cornwall.

To encourage the use of computers across the curriculum, Tecademy is free and open to all teachers (computer science, science, maths, music, English etc).

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