I currently teach BTEC Level 3 Extended Diploma in IT, specialising in programming, web development and CISCO courses. I have 22 years experience of teaching at this level with four years teaching Years 7-13. I am keen to pass on programming skills and I am hoping to start to offer programming mini-courses to children in local primary and lower secondary schools (years 5,6,7 and 8) as a private enterprise (I work part-time). I would like to offer Greenfoot as a vehicle for learning programming and also use the Raspberry Pi for further courses. I currently oversee and arrange, on a voluntary basis, a number of student projects, including encouraging students to learn simple programming languages, animation or simple multimedia presentation tools and then to create activities for children in local primary schools through after school IT clubs.
