Our latest issue of Hello World magazine focuses on the topic of computing and sustainability and this got us thinking this week about the challenges associated with upgrade culture. Many of us rely on mobile devices to communicate in both our work and personal lives but are encouraged to keep up-to-date with the latest and greatest technological innovations. In this episode we'll explore whether this is sustainable and ask, "Does upgrade culture need an upgrade?"
Joining us today are computing educators with a passion for teaching about sustainability:
Mac Bowley is a Learning Manager at the Raspberry Pi Foundation — specialising in online learning content for secondary teachers and students. He loves to bring discussions into the computing classroom to encourage students to think critically about technology’s role in their lives.
James Abela is head of computing at Garden International. He is a Raspberry Pi Certified Educator, founder of the South East Asian Computer Science Teachers' Association, and author of The Gamified Classroom.
