Meet the team and your fellow learners

Say hello to the Learning Team at The Raspberry Pi Foundation.
Meet The Team And Your Fellow Learners

Before you begin your course, we would like to take this opportunity to introduce you to the team here at the Raspberry Pi Foundation.

We are a charity that works to put the power of computing and digital making into the hands of people all over the world. We do this so that more people are able to harness the power of digital technologies for work, to solve problems that matter to them, and to express themselves creatively.

Here are some of the things we currently offer:

The logos of Raspberry Pi, Code Club, CoderDojo, Coolest Projects, Astro Pi, Teach Computing, and Isaac Computer Science.

Meet your course team

Our team is made up of both former and current computing educators, who have used their experience to create these courses.

The lead educator for this course is Marc Scott.

Marc Scott is an ex-teacher who’s responsible for creating and managing Raspberry Pi educational resources. He’s passionate about open education, Emacs, and martial arts.

We care about supporting teachers to achieve their goals, and so we’ve made it our goal to provide you with the best digital learning experience possible — for free. That means we are available to answer questions and give you feedback throughout the course.

Introduce yourself

The best way to learn is by collaborating with other amazing people.

With this in mind, please introduce yourself to your fellow learners by commenting at the bottom of the page.

Think about answering these questions:

  • What made you take the course?
  • What are you hoping to learn?
  • What steps will you take to ensure that you will complete the course? For example, will you set aside some ‘do not disturb’ time in your schedule each week, or will you invite a colleague to take it with you?

You can also reply to your fellow learners in the comments section. Together, we will build a community of educators who share ideas and inspire each other to learn along the way.
