What are some suggestions on teaching with Piper?

Your first two lessons will be building the Piper kits into a fully functional computer.

We recommend spending time up front talking about things that the students have made, and getting them ready for their task ahead. The Piper experience is challenging, prepare students to collaborate and take their time.

We encourage teachers not to give the answers but to help students to find the answers on their own. Once the Piper is built, have a class start on a chapter and work their way through. Some groups will finish sooner, have them help the students that are slower so everyone completes the chapter. At the end of the class have the students remove the jumper wires and place everything back in the Power Up box so it is ready for the next class.
