Was lucky enough to secure some funding for our middle grades campus makerspace. I would love any feedback on what I may be missing, or where a good place to start for soldering, arduino and raspberry pi. Thanks.

Hello everyone!
I just stumbled upon some Sask Ed, computer science curricula from the old days, and was going to attempt to update it prior to implementation in our school division.  I have a few questions for those of you who are teaching/administering/developing a CS program in your schools.
1. What language(Java, Python, Ruby etc.)...
2. What development platform(Koding, Scratch, Hopscotch etc.)...
3. What hardware(Raspberry Pi, Lego, Dash and Dot etc)?...
...are you using, or would you recommend?
Thank-you for your time.

My response to a viral Washington Post article making its way around the interwebz. 

We have 201 members! Umm... any contributions to the discussion folks?

It's hard to keep up with all of the social networking sites. I'm here in Saskatoon, enjoying #SKITsummit2015.

School broadcasts are probably fairly common across our province. Does your school have one?

The attitude we bring to a situation is so critical to success. Our attitude and mindset move us forward or hold us back in whatever task we embark upon.
