A new way for educators interested in computing and digital making to experience Hello World

There’s a growing momentum behind the idea of putting computing, computer science, and digital making at the heart of modern education. At the Raspberry Pi Foundation, we feel there is a need to do more to connect with and support educators, both inside and outside the classroom. That’s why we started Hello World magazine, a platform to help educators all over the world to find inspiration, share experiences, and learn from one another. It’s proven to be popular, with subscribers spanning 173 countries across the globe.

We hear from readers that waiting for a new issue of the magazine to be published can be tiresome, and you’re hungry for more. Consequently, to complement the magazine, we’re launching a free podcast available between issues, so that you can hear directly from the educators behind the articles, delve a little deeper, and have some fun along the way. 

In season one, we explore the importance of creativity and passion in computing with PBS Digital Innovator and CUE (Computer-Using Educators) rock star Amanda Haughs, and dive into the role of ethics in computing with Isaac Computer Science content creator Diane Dowling. We discover how to look after our well-being while teaching with technology, with practical tips from computing educator Cat Lamin, and senior lecturer in computing education at the University of Hertfordshire Neil Rickus. We will also be asking, “Are these the droids you’re looking for to teach algorithms?” with computing teacher Huzaifah Zainon and advanced skills computing teacher Nicki Cooper. 

Start listening now by subscribing to the Hello World Podcast. Let us know if you have a question that you would like answered, or a topic you would like us to explore more. You can get even more involved by sharing your top tips and best teaching practice and be a guest on one of our future episodes. Get in touch with us at podcast@helloworld.cc with your suggestions.
