Non-Project Activity – Discussion
COMMENTS WELCOME AS FEEDBACK TO HUGH AND MARTIN, PLEASE.
Following a brilliant week 1 where 12 people attended Martin’s Raspberry Pi demonstration and fed ideas into Hugh’s discussion re potential outings (wet, dry, and both!)
Tomorrow we will have enough equipment to break into small groups and get hands on with Turing Tumble (TT), marble computer, emulators of TT on iPads, Raspberry Pi, and Pico. This hands on session should engage with everyone and over a few weeks we can plan projects.
The TT emulator is free online and if you have a tablet or pc you will be able to practice at home. There are about 40 tutorials and I’m getting to my “pen pusher” limits at about 23. Group work will definately be required.
I have a couple of iPads that can be borrowed by arrangement
We will ensure we have physical breaks and opportunities to swap tasks. Hope to see you there
(Martin & Hugh)
