Pool Academy staff invited to expand their IT skills  

Staff at Pool Academy have been invited to join a course to help expand their IT skills.

Software Cornwall will be running a two-day Tech Academy in November to help encourage the use of computers across the curriculum.

The course, held at Bluefruit in Redruth, is a free event designed to increase knowledge of computer curriculum, receive access to learning material, become more comfortable using Raspberry Pi’s in classrooms and become a Software Cornwall Certified Tecademy teacher.

The course will be split between November 25 and 26. On Saturday sessions will include programming in Minecraft, using Pi cameras and controlling motors. On Sunday there will be sessions on interactive programming and micro:bit.

Certificates will be awarded at the end of the two days.
