Alan O'Donohoe

Background info about Jam Packed

Out of school, Alan started Hack To The Future & Raspberry Jam to inspire & engage the digital creators of tomorrow. In school, Alan is both an SLE and principal teacher of Computing at Our Lady's Catholic High School, Preston.

In 2011, Alan stopped teaching Powerpoint in favour of Computing. He has since persuaded thousands of teachers to follow.

Read his blog, tweets @teknoteacher or listen to his Teach Computing podcast. To support the development of outstanding teachers of Computing, he offers 'Teach Computing' training & consultancy, leads Computing at School hub meetings, and keynotes at conferences.

Realising his long held dream, Jam Packed will commence an 18 month tour of Northern England from Nov 2014 - Apr 2016 taking these activities and events to the communities that need them the most. Jam Packed is funded by DfE, Raspberry Pi Foundation and RM Education.

Alan appeared on BBC Breakfast in 2013.
