Excerpt: LONDON MEETUP Last night I had the privilege of attending a workshop designed to show interested parties how to set up their own Raspberry Jam. If you haven’t heard of the Raspberry Pi, and by association, the social activity around that small computer, then start here with this film. THE MEETING A group of interested people from different disciplines and professions gathered at Mozilla HQ, London, to flesh out how to run one of these events led by the ubiquitous Alan O’Donohoe (@teknoteacher).

Broadcasting from an iPad

I am about to launch a “niche” education tech YouTube/ LiveStream Channel in the autumn. I have spent a considerable sum on very expensive cameras and audio equipment.

The channel will be optimised for the web but tweaked for connected broadcast as well. I am still looking for sponsors for the programme as it will be a quality product that covers all the exciting things happening in computing and ICT in the UK and…
