Teaching Children In Glasgow, Scotland Via Google Hangout

Written by admin on . Posted in Online Workshops

We recently carried out our first Project Blue Sky google hangout workshop. Emily Adams from Firework Design did a 90 minute show about the basics of how to make money from a website to a group of 11 and 12 year olds from Glasgow, Scotland.

The students were all part of local teachers Business and IT class and the event was arranged after we were contacted by Ian Carpenter from Easterhouse High School.

We connected Ian with Heidi Jacobs who runs Firework Design and has also created some small project websites that earn money.

Easterhouse is a deprived area of the city and the children that attend Oakwood Primary School often come from underprivvaliged backgrounds. Ian Carpenter hopes that the presentation by Julia has inspired the children and together as a class they plan to create their own website project and earn money for the school funds.

Perhaps one or two of the pupils will take the lessons learned and develop things even further!
