teaching resources2


This section of the site contains a variety of resources designed to support teachers who are being asked to deliver the new computing curriculum.


The Document Libraries contain resources that we feel may be useful in delivering the new curriculum. These include Tech Notes: short documents that help you to use the gPiO box more effectively. We’ve also added links to external resources where we feel these would be useful.

The Code Library contains has the same contents as the SD card that we ship with the gPiO Box. The programs on the card are continually updated so the Code Library is a way to keep up to date.

Finally, we’ve added a Pinterest board board for ‘Hard to Find’ components.

We hope these resources are useful, if we’ve missed anything please let us know.

Code Library

python logoscratch_logoThe Code Library is a set of resources designed to help with the use of the gPiO box. The library includes flowcharts (these require Flowol TM to be available), sound files and a number of Python and Scratch programs to get you started. These are updated periodically and the listings below show the current Python and Scratch programs provided on the SD card. If you are using a desktop PC to view this page then copy the files to a memory stick and then onto the Raspberry Pi. Alternately, If you are using a Raspberry Pi that is connected to the internet you can download the files directly.

Hard To Find Components

This is our ‘Where can I find…’ board, if you’ve found something useful that’s not shown here please let us know and we’ll add it to the list.
