About the Author
Jon Witts has been working within the IT industry since 2001, and specifically within Educational IT since 2004. He was introduced to Linux back in 2001, through his collaboration with two German artists who were visiting the arts organization he was then working with. Having studied both Fine Art and Educational Technology, he has sought to innovate with open and accessible digital technologies within his creative practice. Jon is happiest when deconstructing technology and finding its limits.
Jon has embedded within his school the use of Raspberry Pi computers as an integral part of the delivery of the school's Computer Science curriculum. Being a Raspberry Pi Certified Educator, Jon runs various school clubs and projects, such as a Raspberry Pi Robot Building club. Jon also organizes and runs Raspberry Jam events in the 2017 UK City of Culture, Kingston upon Hull.
